So i took my time to transcribe (99.9% ad verbum) Elrufai's interview with Mansur Sokoto in the video shared by @AriyoAristotle

Yes, the same one Aunty @KadariaAhmed and uncle @DrJoeAbah said i should get a translator for or pay N50k to them for a transcript.

"They have a name Islamic Movement of Nigeria, i.e a Muslim group but they are not a Muslim group,  they are a political group. El Zakzaky wants power, he should remove his turban and come and canvas for votes like us,  he refused.

They are hiding behind religion claiming....
Islamic Movement , i want you to investigate, ask them,  don't they have Christians in their group? They will tell you they have Christians,  so how do we now say this group is an Islamic one?.

So  Shiites are different,  El Zakzaky's people are different,maybe some of.....
El Zakzaky's people are Shiites,  but i don't want people to assume that the Nigerian Government or Kaduna State government has a problem with Shiite because they have no problem with them.  Nobody in Nigeria is prohibited from practising their religion
and no one is compelled to practice religion.  Even if you come out to say you don't believe in God,  you have a right to stay in Nigeria and do what you like,  but it does not give you the right to say you don't accept Buhari as Nigeria's  president,
you don't accept / subscribe to  the system of government in Nigeria , you will not own a voter's  card, you will not vote because the system of government in Nigeria is one of infidelity , you will not obey the law of Nigeria and then you block roads to stop people from moving,
go to schools to sleep, if they are having any of their meetings,  they block the road and say nobody will pass. There was a governor of Kaduna who went for a visit in the street El Zakzaky was, they said he wouldn't pass unless he alights and journey on foot,
so that's how they are,  they've spent over 30 years breaking laws doing what they deemed fit, Nobody dealt with them. Until they went to block road and said the COAS would not pass through , they weren't the ones who constructed that road,  it's a government - owned road,
this same government they said they don't agree with,  it is Iranian government they agree with, me that i am governor of Kaduna,  they say I'm not governor, they have their own governor, in every state in Nigeria,  they have a governor, they have their own Local Government....
chairmen, they don't agree with any system of Nigerian Government.

Now which government will sit down and watch this kind of people and not take actions?

Past governments left them to do what they like, they became bold / powerful and now assume they are above everyone , ..
we will not accept that.  

When they triggered soldiers and soldiers took action o them,  they killed about 300 + persons, it was we the government who took the burden of burying them and performed other burial rites and he El Zakzaky was caught and detained by the military ,
we spent about two years investigating the crimes he committed over the years, we finished investigation and charged him to court here in Kaduna, and they are treason. So therefore,
his continued detention is in line with a court order., it's not as if he's being held without evidence and among the allegations levied against him are murder,  abduction of children who are later taken to his house and trained to be his bodyguards and so many other offences
like blocking government roads,  inconveniencing The masses and the rest  Those are the offences we are holding him for and he will be prosecuted and whatever the judges say,  if they say he has committed no offence,
we will release him,  and if they say otherwise, whatever their verdict is will be executed.  So therefore, i want to reiterate again that the government of Kaduna State does not have problem with shiite. In this state,  there is a Shiites group that is being led by
Sheikh Hamza Lawal, one that does not instigate any unrest but only practice their religion and have no business with anybody,  also, they do not say that they disagree with the government of Nigeria or that they will not obey the laws of Kaduna ,
but they (El Zakzaky's people), they do not accept the government of Nigeria and will not obey the laws of the land and that's why here in Kaduna,  we took actions and made a law that we will not allow them to do their thing here and that's why if you look at it,
they've taken their troubles to Abuja because anyone who comes out to say they are a member of the El Zakzaky group,  we will arrest them and parade them before the judges , 7 years!! That's how we deal with them.
And what i want the masses to understand is that, El Zakzaky's group has nothing to do with religion , they just want to take over government,  they want to bring a change of government to Nigeria,
the type that Is in Iran Those who did not know should know,  people who are there using government roads, they don't pay taxes , they do not accept the system of government,  they do not agree with anybody , they see themselves as a government within a government,
No government will allow this,  except past governments who allowed them to do these.  President ,Buhari will not allow it, and i will not allow it here in Kaduna either, and we are here working in accordance with the law, he's been caught , and he's being tried."
Yes, that's how Elrufai managed to politicise the IMN movement, but what I'm struggling to understand is how

1. he managed to drag Christians into the matter
2. How he knew all these but still 'accepted' votes from this same treasonous group in 2015
3. How the Shias are
.... the only religious group being 'convicted' for road blockage in Nigeria

4. What makes the Shi'ite ideology of rejection of an infidel government different from Sunni Boko haram and MACBAN's

Elrufai captured them @dondekojo and @ZumaXY in his interview 👏👏
