Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and Reno Omkri, a former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan have condemned the proscription of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), saying the group would not have been protesting if their leader had been released.

Fani-Kayode who is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) took to his Twitter page to remind Nigerians how Shia Muslims have helped Christians.

“We Christians in Nigeria will never forget the way in which Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his Shia Muslims protected and assisted our brothers and sisters in the North over the years when the Salafists, Wahhabi Sunni fundamentalists, slaughtered us like flies.

“We stand by them at this difficult time. We condemn the proscription of the IMN and we say no to the tyranny of Buhari.”

On his part, Omokri, also faulted the decision of the Federal Government to proscribe the IMN.

Omokri recalled that the ruling All Progressives Congress (previously the Action Congress of Nigeria) had faulted Jonathan when he banned the Boko Haram terrorist sect.

“When Jonathan declared Boko Haram a terror group in 2013 and banned them, the APC (then called ACN) rejected the ban, claiming it was ‘unconstitutional.’

“Today, the same people have banned Shiites. Between Shiites and Boko Haram, who is the terrorist?”, he wrote.
