Hezbollah denounced on Thursday the attack that was carried out by the Nigerian army on the supporters of the Islamic Movement in Zaria city in Nigeria what left hundreds either killed or injured, committing a crime that matches all the features of a genocide.
In a statement, Hezbollah considered that arresting the major symbol Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky after shooting him as well as detaining dozens of the Islamic Movement supporters in Nigeria raises the questions about the intentions that control the troops which committed the crime and the regional and International forces which instigated them to commit that blatant criminal act.
Hezbollah called on the Nigerian authorities to reveal all the facts related to the crime through a transparent probe, punish all the culprits, release sheikh Zakzaky and the rest of the arrested, deliver the martyrs' corpses to their families, and return to the avenue of wisdom in order to treat this bleeding wound.
Hezbollah finally offered the deepest condolences to the families of the martyrs, wishing a speedy recovery for the wounded and an immediate release for the arrested "if Holy God wills."
On Monday, Nigerian troops arrested the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Ibrahim al-Zakzaky, after committing a massacre against people attending a religious ceremony in Hussainiyyah Baqeeyatullah in the northern city of Zaria.
