US/Iran faceoff: Group calls for red alert on IMN members

- The United States of America and Britain over the safety of its citizens in Nigeria

- The warning to the US and Britain came from the Global Action for Peace

- According to the peace organisation, the alleged threat issued by the IMN to citizens of the US and the United Kingdom in Nigeria over the killing of Qassem Soleimani is an “affront to our collective sensibilities as Nigerians

The Global Action for Peace has alerted the United States of America and Britain over the safety of its citizens in Nigeria following an alleged threat by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN).

The organisation said the threat issued by the IMN to citizens of the US and the United Kingdom in Nigeria is an “affront to our collective sensibilities as Nigerians, which must be looked into by the security agencies.”

Speaking during a press conference on Sunday, January 5, in Abuja, the peace organisation said the alleged threat is an indication of the zero regards they have for the constituted authorities in the country.

The convener of the organisation, Joseph Agbo urged these nations to blacklist the sect known for violence and bloodshed.

He advised the United States and the United Kingdom to see this as a clarion call and activate measures that would support the efforts of the security agencies in Nigeria in curtailing the threats posed by the IMN.

Agbo said: "The Global Action for Peace wishes to use this medium to inform members of the general public of the threat posed by the banned Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) to citizens of the United States of America and the United Kingdom in Nigeria."

He said the action by the IMN should give all well-meaning Nigerians a cause for concern given the fact that the Federal Government is yet to make any official statement given the position of the United Nations over the military face-off between the United States of America and Iran.

"The posturing of the IMN is indeed a red alert, and as such, there is every need for all hands to be on deck to tackle whatever violent uprising that the IMN is planning in Nigeria."

"The Global Action for Peace wishes to advise the United States and the United Kingdom to see this as a clarion call and activate measures that would support the efforts of the security agencies in Nigeria in curtailing the threats posed by the IMN. This is highly necessary given the fact that the IMN is now a global threat," Agbo added.
