Members of IMN, also known as Shi’ites, reiterated this during the 2019 matyrs’ day celebration by the group in Abuja.

Speaking at the ceremony, Sheikh Abdulhamid Bello, the Head of IMN’s Shuhada (Martyrs) Foundation, said, “We are here to peacefully honour our brethren who have been killed over the years because of their spiritual inclinations as we have consistently done.

“However, this year’s event, which in the 28th in the series, is coming against a backdrop of an astronomical increase in the number of our departed heroes, especially with an increase of over 50 members (allegedly) killed by the elite Guards Brigade of the Nigerian Army during the 2018 Arbaeen Trek in Zuba. We strongly believe that blood will inevitably triumph over bullets at the end.”

Other prominent Islamic scholars at present include: Sheikh Yakubu Yahaya Katsina, Sheikh Abdullahi Zango and Professor Abdullahi Danladi among others.
