The Iranian Shi’ites who held different placards while chanting “Free free Zakzaky”, described the Buhari-led government as a tyrannical government which they will overthrow and teach Buhari and Nigerians a good lesson.
A man who appeared like the leader of the protesters, criticized the federal government over the continued detention of El-Zakzaky.
“The judge of Nigeria ordered that Zakzaky and his members to be freed but the government didn’t listen to that and so we are calling on them to free Zakzaky,” he said.
“The government of Nigeria should know that it cannot keep Zakzaky forever in the detention and in jail, In Sha Allah, by overthrowing the tyrannical government, we will free Zakzaky and teach Nigeria and its people a good lesson.”
Recall that Zakzaky has been in detention since December 2015 after his followers clashed with some soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna state. His sect members have held a series of protests to demand his release, but the government refused even when a federal high court, Abuja, granted him bail.
Iranian Shi’ites who reacted to the recent clash between Nigerian Shi’ites and the Nigerian military which led to the death of members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, have threatened to overthrow Buhari.
