The Islamic Movement in Nigeria on Friday “strongly condemned the provocative airstrike ordered by President Trump that led to the death of the Iranian top general and Guards Commander, Quaseem Soleimani and the Iraqi Commander, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis”.

The condemnation statement was issued by Ibrahim Musa, President Media Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.

The movement said the two commanders were “martyred following a drone strike specially ordered by president Trump”.

The movement said Trump’s action “has dangerously made the world on the edge of a very destructive war”.

“The Islamic Movement sends condolences to both the leaders and peoples of Iran and Iraq for these colossal loses, and share their grief at this trying moment,” the statement added.
