An All Progressives Congress chieftain in Gombe State, Alhaji Samaila Mohammed has said that the recent clashes between the army and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, also known as Shi’ites were a strong indication that President Buhari administration was inviting anarchy into the country ahead of 2019 elections.

This follows series of killings and loss of property resulting from the recent face-off between Shi’ites and security operatives.

Mohammed told DAILY POST Thursday in Bauchi that the continued detention of Shiites leader was an illegality and contradicts any given law relating to human rights.

"It’s a fact that several courts in Nigeria have granted El- Zakzaky unconditional bail but Buhari administration has always turned down the orders deliberately to cause anarchy, using religious sentiment,” said Mohammed.

He cautioned that using force in addressing such sensitive religious matters was extremely wrong, especially as Nigeria approaches the general elections.

The APC chieftain maintained that under Buhari, injustice was a major impediment in uniting the society, yet the FG has failed to respect the rule of law.

"Our expectations are that security should utilise their professionalism to address Nigeria’s security challenges instead of compromising their obligations to politicians to the detriment of its citizens” fumed Mohammed.

He, therefore, urged president Buhari to take the path of honour and curb Shiites and security clashes for free and fair 2019 elections.
