Nigeria threatened over Shiite Muslim attack
The attack on many Shiite Muslims in Zaria, Kaduna State, by the Nigerian army seems to have sparked fires in other parts of the world.
A Facebook account, claiming to belong to the Iranian military, yesterday posted a thinly-veiled threat against Nigeria over the attack, in which 3 people were reportedly killed.
The Facebook post read: “The time when they could oppress Shias and get away with it is long gone, we shall pay a visit to the puppet regime in Nigeria soon, God willing. #Nigeria #Zakzaky #Iran #QudsForce”
Iran is a predominantly Shia Muslim country, and the country has already contacted President Muhammad Buhari to form a fact-finding committee to investigate the incident.
