Iran ready to help fight terrorism in Nigeria

Published

on

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - Iranian President

The Government of Iran has pledged its support to help Nigeria in fighting terrorism in the country.

An Iranian embassy official, Mr Manouchelfr Sadeghi Barzhahi while speaking during the 33rd National Day anniversary of the Islamic Republic of Iran at the weekend in Abuja said that there is the need for Nigeria and Iran to work on bilateral issues in the areas of cooperation and creating regional co-operation in economy.

Mr. Barzhahi also spoke on the oil sector saying that;

“Iran has very good experience of over 100 years of oil industries that can be transformed to Nigeria.”

Barzahahi called for concerted efforts by all friends of Nigeria to fight terrorism.

Chief Whip of the House of Representative Mukthar Mohammed said Nigeria is facing security challenges.

“It is the duty of the global community to stand against it; we are calling on all friends of Nigerians to stand by us at this period.” Mukthar stated.

It would be interesting to note that a United State Department report stated that “Iran remains the most active state sponsor of terrorism in the world”

Iran strongly rejected the report.

    All the terrorist in and from Nigeria, from observation, are Muslims. In the light of this I don’t think it is wise to accept assistance from fellow Muslim nation. Remember that anything about terrorism has to do with professionalism and expertise in the field of militarization. Of course, they have ex-military officials amongst them, but where did they do their military training? In a short note, I am not the president of Nigeria and I don’t know his political and diplomatic stands with Iran, but I advise him against accepting aid from any Muslim nation for the time being. Thanks.

    According to authentic and verifiable sources, the US is the only nation in the world today which has nuclear weapon. Also, it is the only nation ever to have committed acts of butchery against humanity with the nuclear weapon in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Iran does not have a single nuclear weapon. For facts and figures, log onto the website of “ANSWER Coalition” and see the lies of US exposed.
    Without being biased, the real terrorist nations are the US and Israel while the real terrorist organization is NATO. ANSWER Coalition is a US-based rights group. Please check its website: http://www.AnswerCoalition.org

    I cant believe nigerians would even have time to listen to iran’s envoy. Iran’s president Ahmadinejad is the no. 1 terrorist on planet earth. Left to me, the iranian embassy in nigeria should be closed down and GEJ should start fighting the iranian government if at all we want eradicate boko haram in nigeria.

Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
