The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has expressed grief over the accidental bombing of Tudun Biri in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State by the Nigerian Army on Sunday, which left no fewer than 85 villagers dead.
The incident occurred on Sunday night when hundreds of residents of the area gathered for the annual Maulud celebration.
The IMN, in a statement on Tuesday by Sheikh Sidi Munir Mainasara Sokoto, a member of the movement, called for a thorough investigation to ascertain what led to the massacre.
Their demands are made as follows:
“All people of conscience should come out publicly to condemn these atrocities and demand justice for the people of Tudun Biri. The perpetrators of this massacre should be identified, investigated, and prosecuted.
“An investigation should be conducted to ascertain what happened, the number of people killed or injured, and the losses incurred by the people of Tudun Biri as a result of this massacre.
“The Nigerian Army, Kaduna State Government, and the Federal Government of Nigeria should pay compensation to the families of victims of the Tudun Biri massacre.”Follow us on social media
