Zaria Genocide Memorial: How Beastly Nigerian Soldiers Stole From Their Dead Victims

The lowest point in the gruesome extra-judicial killing of innocent, unarmed members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria by the Nigerian Army was when pictures of soldiers stooping to pickpockets of their dead victims emerged.

The Nigerian Army had killed over a thousand members of the IMN between December 12th and 14th, 2015 in Zaria. After the shooting spree, soldiers were captured in pictures searching and stealing from the corpses. Items they apparently stole from their dead victims included money, rings, wristwatches, necklaces, and other ornamental items.

Thereafter, they threw the corpses in a raging fire, and later collected the remains and sent for mass burial. Their victims included children, women and the aged. No soldier has been charged for these horrendous crimes against humanity. The Buhari government rather promoted all the officers that had any major role in the execution of the well-orchestrated pogrom.
