British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright has reacted to the recent Shiite killings in Nigeria expressing concern for the whole killing drama.
In his words;
“Like many across Nigeria, I am following with concern the reports of violence in Zaria over the weekend between the Nigerian security forces and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria.”
“I am further concerned at reports that protests in Kaduna have turned violent.
Nigeria‘s religious and ethnic diversity adds a great deal to this country‘s rich culture. It is important, therefore, that Nigerians of all faiths are allowed to assemble and worship freely.”
“In addition, I call on the security forces to conduct their operations within the rule of law, and for demonstrators to ensure any protests are peaceful and equally act within the law.”
