Islamic Movement In Nigeria
A statement made available to journalists at the Iranian Embassy said the protest follows an attempt by Iran to cause havoc in Nigeria through their proxy organisation, the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).
The centre also noted that being the spokesman of the IMN is enough to taint the book with falsehood, defamation or blackmail capable of inciting the public against the Nigerian government.
One passerby in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja has been killed by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force while shots were fired at members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) otherwise known as Shi'ites.
A confrontation by some protesting members of the outlawed Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), popularly called Shi'ites, with men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPC) in Abuja has left at least five people injured.
The IMN leader was arrested and detained by the federal government in 2015, after some of its members had a clash with security agents attached to Nigeria's Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) has reportedly disclosed that it is investigating allegations of possible war crimes and crimes against humanity in some clashes in Nigeria.
