Islamic Movement in Nigeria: Anti-imperialism Organization in Africa
Imperialism is a system in which a rich and powerful country controls the instrument of leadership and by extension the resources of other less powerful countries, or a desire for control over other countries.
Imperialism and neo-colonialism are two faces of the same coin. Due to intense pressure from Nationalists, greedy European colonialists were forced to leave Africa but they never left. They later engineered coups and counter-coups to impose their puppets to facilitate their continue looting of African resources.
Dear Friends, please check the mineral resources map of the African continent. Africa is among the richest continents in terms of resources but it is the poorest continent in the world. Why? The rich African resources are being looted by the greedy imperialist directly or via their lackeys who are head of government of African countries.
My country, Nigeria, is rich in mineral resources that included Crude Oil but today Nigeria is the extreme capital of the whole world. The funds that should have been used for developmental purposes were looted by corrupt leaders and deposited in Western financial institutions for safe keeping. Nigeria, a country of more than 180 million in population, can only provide 4,000MW of electricity. Funds earmarked for power were looted and there is no single person in jail for that.
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky is an Anti-imperialism organization. The IMN awakens Nigerians and Africans of the ills of imperialism and neo-colonialism and call on Africans to free the continent of this scourge. There were great African anti-imperialism leaders in the past. Great Heroes such as Patrick Lumumba, Thomas Sankara etc. all murdered by the greedy and arrogant imperialist.
The recent brutal and genocidal attack of the Islamic Movement by the Buhari regime that resulted in the inhuman slaughter of more than one thousand innocent children, women and men in Zaria in December 2015 was a desperate quest to extinguish this anti-imperialism light in Africa. For more than 20 years now, whenever any government assume power in Nigeria, three entities [US, Saudi Arabia & the “Israeli” regime] send security reports against Sheikh Zakzaky and the Islamic Movement. We have it on credible information that since 2004 the US regime via the CIA have IMN desk at the American embassy in Abuja. A desk dedicated to the Islamic Movement.
In order to perpetuate imperialism looting of African resources, the arrogant imperialist considered organizations such as the Islamic Movement as a threat to them and they always plan on how to either cripple or destroy such organizations. The main reason of the brutal and inhuman Zaria genocide. The Saudi regime was the front of the Zaria genocide but if the mask is removed the greedy imperialists are behind the mask.
On a Final note, Africans need to wake up and take this rich continent back from the greedy agents of imperialism and neo-colonialism that has impoverished Africans. African resources should be for Africans not for the greedy Western imperialists.
