April 27, 2019

TEHRAN – Tehran on Saturday welcomed the Nigerian government’s “positive” move to allow a medical team to visit and examine Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, leader of Nigeria’s Shiite community, and his wife, the Iranian Foreign Ministry website reported.

In a Saturday statement, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi expressed the hope that with Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife receiving full treatment inside or outside Nigeria, the trend of interaction and constructive talks between authorities of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and the Nigerian government will result in the settlement of problems and the release of the top cleric.
