Some protesters in Iran have threatened to overthrow the President Muhammadu Buhari government over the continued detention of Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).
Zakzaky has been in detention since December 2015 when his followers clashed with members of the Nigerian Army in Zaria, Kaduna state.
The sect leader had been granted bail which the federal government refused to honour.
In a video seen by Concise News, the Iranian protesters condemned the Buhari 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,” a protester 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.”
