Nigeria (IP) - As the world commemorates the martyrdom anniversary of the late Iranian Quds Forces Commander, Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) said there is no doubt that the killers of Lt. Gen. Soleimani have exposed themselves to be the actual terrorists.

Iran PressAfrica: In the speech he delivered during the commemoration ceremony held in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja (FCT-Abuja), Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky said: "Here somebody is fighting terrorism, and here is someone who murdered him, showing clearly who the actual terrorist is."

The Nigerian Shia leader also said that the perpetrators of the assassination of Lt. Gen. Soleimani had made a grievous mistake.

"The martyrdom of Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani had indeed shocked us, and we actually mourn the event, and as I am saying, the killers had made a grievous mistake because the blood of Lt. Gen. Soleimani will continue to hunt you. Definitely, it will continue to track you. You have made a mistake similar to those tyrants before you, those who made the mistake of the massacre of Karbala.

This similar mistake was made by the zionists in the martyrdom of an influential Lebanese Shia cleric, Sayyed Abbas al-Musawi, thinking that they would finish the Hezbollah, instead, the Hezbollah became stronger than before, and they have gotten another capable leader, in the person of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. Also, they have made a similar mistake in killing a senior Lebanese Hezbollah figure General Imad Mughniyeh, whose blood has also hunted the Zionists and gave them a blow that they have never forgotten," said the cleric.
