Nigerians were attacked to death in Burkina Faso.

An Islamic group known as Jam’iyyatu Ansaariddeen Attijjaniyya (JAMAA) has demanded justice for Nigeria devotees of Tijjaniyya who were reportedly killed by Burkinabe Army in Burkina Faso on their way to visit the Tijjaniyya worldwide leader.

While addressing journalists in Abuja, the National Secretary of JAMAA, Sayyidi Muhammad AlQasim Yahaya, said the followers of Tijjaniyya worldwide are known to regularly pay visits to the home country of their leader, Sheikhul-Islam Alhaji Ibrahim Niasse Al-Kaulahee, specifically for conferences and Maulid celebrations, according to Daily Trust.

Islamic Group Seeks Justice For 16 Nigerians ‘Killed By Burkina Faso Army’

Yahaya said, “During such crusades, convoys from Nigeria used to travel through international borders to Kaolack, Senegal, traversing countries such as Niger, Burkina-Faso, and Mali.”

The JAMAA national secretary said that during the 2023 journey, a delegation of Nigerians in a convoy of luxurious mini-buses was stopped by the Burkinabe Army on patrol and made to alight from their buses.

He said they were “randomly selected without questioning and cold-bloodedly shot to death in a most despicable display of brutality”.

He continued, “The current number of casualties is 16 dead, while some vehicles and their occupants are yet to be accounted for.

“Emanating from the above, we hearken to urgently draw the attention of the Nigerian Government, the United Nations, and genuine human rights organisations to, as a matter of obligation, wade into this matter and ensure that the rights of the victims of this bloodbath are upheld, and the blood-thirsty culprits are immediately brought to book.

“All members and fellow Muslims are called upon to pray for the repose of the souls of the innocent victims.”
