Sheikh Muhammad Turi remembered:
Sheikh Muhammad Turi was a prominent member of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibrahim #Zakzaky. He was among the few first generation left, he was considered as the next in line in the leadership hierarchy of the Movement.
Sheikh Turi was an Accountancy graduate from the University of Maiduguri, #Nigeria. Even at the University he was an active Islamic activist. After graduation he plunged in to Islamic scholarship & activism, & his contribution can not be quantify.
When Sheikh Turi was in Kaduna in the late 80s I benefited from his scholarship & Guidance. Whoever knows Sheikh Turi will tell you about his gentleness & piety. I learnt the rudiments of self-purification from Sheikh Turi.
Great personalities such as Sheikh Turi are rewarded by God with the most distinguished medal of Martyrdom.
A big loss indeed but the cause & values he struggled for will live after him & will continue to inspired many for years to come.
Sheikh Muhammad Turi was among innocent & defenseless Nigerians brutally killed by the Nigerian Army in the residence of Sheikh #Zakzaky in Zaria, Nigeria.
My heartfelt condolences to his family especially his pious wife, Malama Maimuna, & to his extended family both in Kaduna & Niger States.
