These people are asking for the release of their leader and the wife that had been granted bail by the court of the Land. Watch their protests, they never carry guns or dangerous weapons. What about the Fulani herdmen that have killed hundreds of people. The government of PMB and APC are not truthful. Proscription of Islamic Movement of Nigeria is unfair.

I don’t support because there is freedom of religion and associations in our Constitution and there is no sacred law forbidden them.
Its a mixed development the Nigeria’s court that ordered Federal Government to release the Shiites Leader, Alhaji Ibrahim El zakZaky and corruptly disobeyed by the FG, the same government that our holds judiciary in contempts,its the same disobedient government the judiciary granted her request without blinking an eye. Kosofe Post no further comments.
Other country’s can not be undermining our internal security through by some sponsored citizens and we expect government not to act. In addition, ,President Muhammad Buhari’s will make his critics jobless if he can proscribed theFulani herdsmen who destroyed lives and properties compared to the Islamic Movement of Nigeria group.

No, because the activities of shiites movement is going beyond religious group. While would a religious group move around with gun, when they are not security operatives.
In other way they claim to be practising Islam, if you read Quran from ” Fathia to Nas” you will never find their modes of operation in it, even in the hadith’s of the Prophet (Saw). It’s an express statement in the Quran that order Muslims to follow Allah and the leaders.
Someone should help me tell him(Government ) that the respective courts that granted him bail considered public interest amongst others before coming up with their decisions. It is only the courts that have the powers to interpret what public interest is. The Federal government’s inability to obey and abide by court orders or rulings is the major cause of the impunity exhibited by security agents and some highly placed individuals in the country. People go about acting the way it pleases them not minding the effect their actions have on the entire polity once they have a relationship with the government in power. Rule of law gives credence to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Failure of the Government to abide by the law invariably weakens the powers of the Constitution and ultimately plunges the country into untold anarchy. #RespectTheRuleOfLaw.

Its a welcome development I support it wholly. If anybody who do not win an election and fear imminent of defeat at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal to resort to sponsoring terrorist group to destabilize the government must have a rethink. Premium must be placed on public interest than personal interest as a Patriotic citizens.
Where will you place freedom of Association, IMN is just like any organization like zumuratul, Ahmadiya .Government should have demanded for a bond from notable traditional rulers from the zone to stand as surety for the man. its important to obey the rule of law as Democratic govt,.once they can meet up with same conditions, the group will maintain peace. Nigeria can’t contain additional pockets of internal crisis.. Political parties inclination apart, we l as Nigeria should see any social problems as a plagues we should all fight for the best interest of our nation. Boko Haram started when PDP as a party was on board,we saw it as problems of the party then,now that Boko Haram is still on,how do we describe it now.injury to one should be seen as injury to all.

Suffice to say that any religion-related movement whatsoever should be prohibited in a religiously sensitive country like Nigeria. I think the Nigerian government has learnt its lessons from its docility towards the evolution of the deadly Islamic Movement called Boko Haram. A MOVEMENT of its kind shouldn’t be treated with kid gloves but a very decisive action. Movements of its kind, if allowed to fester might degenerate into an insurmountable killer group like Boko Haram. Therefore, the proscription of Shittes is a well thought out move by the government of Nigeria.
Well l do not really understand the doctrine of the Islamic sect but be it a Christian group or Muslim group and religious body or sect that enforces it doctrine or ways nor lifestyle on the rest of the society that did not willing of his/her accord is their membership should be abolished. our constitution state freedom of worship for peace sake .so therefore, can not say to be for nor against for l only saw damage of Maryland ojota mini bus, bus stop in front st Agnes Catholic church demarcation and was told Lagos shittes members protested and destroyed it. My prayer is for peace to return to Nigeria . All persons using religion as political tools should fear God Almighty /Allah whose is the final judge of mankind no amount of wealth will accompany any man to his grave talkless of heaven or hell. it is an excess luggage spiritually. # Mankind wise up
