Newsline: Nigerians Storms Iranian Embassy, Condemn Envoy’s Role

A coalition of human rights and national interfaith and religious organistions for peace, has stormed the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Abuja, demanding the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and security agencies to sanction the Ambassador of Iran to Nigeria, Saeed Koozechi if found guilty over what they called undue interference in Nigera’s internal affairs. The group is made up of over 500 civil society organisations from across the country. In his address, the national president of the coalition, Comrade Ibrahim Abubakar, expressed worry that Iran became the champion-in-chief of the Shiite sect in its uprising against the country. He said, “Comments from senior Iranian officials were debasing to the extent that an uninformed person would be tempted to believe the whole of Nigeria was just another province of Iran.”
