USA Vs Iran: Nigerian Muslim Council Frowns At Muslim Youths Protest in Abuja


The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has appealed to Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (alias Shi'ites) “not to allow their emotions becloud them to the dangers of taking to the streets.”

This appeal is coming hours after the members of the Shi'ites stormed the streets of Abuja on Monday to protest the death of Iranian General, Qassem Soleimani who was killed by the United States airstrike on Friday.

The Shi'ites protesters burnt the flag of the US at the Banex, Wuse area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to register their displeasure over the death of the Iranian general.

In reaction to their demonstration, the Head of Media and Communication (NSCIA), Ibrahim Aselemi, in a statement said the timing for the protest was wrong as it could lead to loss of lives.

The statement read: “We appeal to these Muslim youths not to allow their emotions becloud them to the dangers of taking to the streets.

“We appeal to the law enforcement agency to be alive to their responsibility of protecting lives and property.”
