Police burnt own vehicle to frame Shiites ― IMN
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to urgently investigate the setting on fire of police operational vehicle last Saturday in Kaduna when a detachment from the Kaduna police command attacked a group of mourners.
This was contained in a petition written to the IGP, Mohammed Adamu, and signed by the president of the movement’s Media Forum, Ibrahim Musa on Monday.
The petition called on the police boss to set up an investigation panel as a matter of urgency to investigate the circumstances surrounding this senseless act of destruction of own property.
According to the statement, “Policemen were caught on camera setting their own operational vehicle ablaze shortly after they opened fire on the Ashura mourners, killing three people and wounding dozens of others.
“Many other vehicles belonging to members of the Islamic Movement were also vandalised by the rampaging policemen, who also set houses ablaze and made a number of arrests.
“It was not immediately clear why policemen would deliberately set their own vehicle on fire, but it might not be unconnected with their attempts at framing up members of the Islamic Movement, who were solemnly mourning the brutal murder of the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (S) as is done in many parts of the Islamic world each year during this period.”
