Residents of Zaria, Kaduna State, are happy over the demolition of the Primary and Secondary School “Fudiyya School” belonging to Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) popularly called Shi’ites.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the school is located at Babban-Dodo, Gangaren-Fadama.

Malam Musa Musa, a resident of the area, said the demolition was not only a welcome idea but a good step in the right direction.

“We have long been waiting for this action; it came at a time we did not expect. However, we are really happy with what happened today.

“These people have been disturbing us whenever they are conducting their activities.”

Another resident, Malam Baba Bala, advised Kaduna State Government not to relent in its efforts to curtail the `worrisome activities’ of Shi’ite sect which according to him, were infringing on the rights of others.

Referring to the detention of the spiritual leader of the sect, he said: “I must confess that Zaria is now safe without El-Zakzaky.

“We are behind what this government is doing; we hope it will carry out the good work to its logical conclusion.”

The demolition commenced at about 2:30 p.m. under the supervision of armed security personnel.

Mr Samuel Aruwan the Director-General, Media to Gov. Nasiru El-Rufa’i, said he just received the information. (NAN)
