The Nigerian government has tried during recent years to crack down the Shia community and now has found the issue of quarantine and health protocols as a new excuse for continuing its crimes, adds the statement.
Condemning the aggression against Shia Muslims, the body called on the Foreign Ministry, international bodies, and religious leaders across the world slam the crime and use all legal tools available to prevent such aggressions.
The casualties took place on Saturday evening when police and security forces violently attacked an annual Ashura mourning ceremony that had been organized by the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) in Hayin Bello neighborhood of Kaduna.
The IMN, led by prominent Muslim cleric Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, said on its Twitter account that police had also fired teargas at mourners in the ceremony and vandalized their vehicles.
