Members of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria aka Shiites,
today took to the streets of Abuja to protest the recent killing of
Iranian military commander, General Qasem Soleimani, by a United States
airstrike last week January 3rd.
The protesting Shiite members seized the opportunity to also demand the
release of their leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat
who are currently in detention.
Chanting hate songs and slogans like “Death To America”, the protesting Shiites also burnt a US flag.
