The Special Task Force, Operation Safe Haven, OPSH, has warned members of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria led by Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky against protest in any part of the state.

The warning is contained in a statement signed by the Military Information Officer, Maj. Ishaku Takwa

”Intelligence report available to Operation SAFE HAVEN indicates a planned protest by members of the proscribed IMN, otherwise known as Shiites.

“The protest, planned to hold nationwide including Plateau is scheduled for Friday,  due to the health challenge of El -Zakzaki.

“While we acknowledge the rights of individuals and groups to hold peaceful protests or processions, it is however instructive to note  that the fragile security situation on the Plateau is currently not conducive for such activities.

“In view of the above, we are hereby calling on members of IMN to shelve their plan to protest in the state,” he said.

Takwa said that the Commander of operation, Maj.-Gen. Ibrahim Ali,  has ordered troops to ensure that the planned protest by members of  IMN or any other group does not take place on the Plateau until full security of lives and property is guaranteed.
