Kano(IP) - Hundreds of citizens of Nigeria on Friday evening gathered at Fagge Juma'a mosque in Kano city to mourn the martyrdom of Iran's senior military advisor, Seyyed Razi Mousavi who was assassinated by Israel in Syria on Monday.

Iran PressAfrica: During the event in the commercial center of Nigeria, recitation of the holy Qur'an and a special prayer for the souls of Martyr General Seyyed Razi Mousavi, Martyr Lt. Gen Qasem Soleimani, and Martyr Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis were among the activities held.

Moreover, a senior member of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Sunusi Abdulqadir, delivered a speech during the mourning gathering.

Sheikh Sunusi Abdulqadir said the assassination of Iran's military officers cowardly by the United States and Israel did not make the Axis of Resistance weaker, rather, the Resistance became stronger than ever.

He added that this is because the blood of martyrs always makes the struggle against evil more powerful.

"When America assassinated Lt. General Qasem Soleimani, they thought the Axis of Resistance would be weaker, He added: Three months before the 4th anniversary of his martyrdom, Hamas launched Operation Al Aqsa Flood on 7 October, humiliated Zionists' terrorist regime and exposed how weaker they are. Instead of them to take lesson, the Zionist regime recently assassinated another IRGC commander, General, Seyyed Razi Mousavi in Syria who worked hand in hand with martyr Soleimani. Now that they killed him,  only God knows how bad the repercussions would be."

Before his martyrdom, Seyyed Razi Mousavi was one of the companions of Iran's anti-terror commander, Lt. General Qasem Soleimani, former Quads Forces commander who was assassinated by the order of former American president, Donald Trump in Baghdad International Airport in Iraq on 3rd January 2020.
