Iran has offered to help Nigeria resolve the issue of the abduction of nearly 300 female students in the African country by the Takfiri terrorist group, Boko Haram.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks at a Monday meeting in Tehran with Nigerian Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Iran Tukur Mani.
Tukur Mani, for his part, extended Nigeria’s gratitude to Iran for sympathizing with the African government and nation as well as condemning the terrorist act.
On April 14, Boko Haram abducted nearly 300 students from their secondary school in the northeastern town of Chibok.
The Nigerian government has been under intense pressure by many groups of people around the globe, the girls’ families in particular, to secure their release.
Boko Haram whose name means “Western education is forbidden” says its goal is to overthrow the Nigerian government.
It has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly gun and bomb attacks in various parts of Nigeria since 2009.
An offer we know they will not accept because they are slaves to Zionist agents
