The Islamic Republic of Iran has asked the Federal Government of Nigeria to allow the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN),

Shiekh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, to come to Iran for medical treatment.

The Prosecutor-General of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mohammed Montazeri, made this request on behalf of the Iranian government.

According to AhlulBayt News Agency, an Iran-based news organisation, Montazeri said this in a letter on Saturday.


He also called on the Nigerian judiciary, to grant bail to El-Zakzaky who is the leader of all Shi’ites in Nigeria.

Montazeri who described El-Zakzakky’s current medical condition as a source of worry to his country, also criticised the federal government’s handling of the crisis.

The letter read in part, “I, as the prosecutor general of the Islamic Republic of Iran, urge the Nigerian judicial authorities (to take steps) in line with their judicial independence and support for a captive citizen, and provide the ground for his release and transfer him to the Islamic Republic of Iran for treatment.”

Iran, which is the stronghold of the Shi’a Muslim faith, has been demanding the release of El-Zakzaky.

This is insane and absurd, how can another country with no direct lineage to us be dictating what we should do in our country.
We should outrightly send their ambassador parking
