– Governor El-Rufai claims that Shiites do not recognise Nigeria’s constitution and President Buhari
– He also revealed that Shiites leader El-Zakzaky was planning to overthrow Buhari
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has claimed that the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) also known as the Shiites does not recogise Muhammadu Buhari as the President of the country.
El Rufai also said the group doesn’t accord him the respect as the sitting Governor of the state.
Speaking with newsmen on Sunday, the governor said that the group was outlawed by the state government because its leader, Sheihk Ibrahim El Zakzaky and members had refused to respect constituted authorities and that their activities amount to running a parallel government against the state.
He said the IMN apart from being an illegal religious organisation, was in the habit of harassing and intimidating members of the public with impunity for several years.
