After Monday’s peaceful rally to the Iranian Embassy in Abuja, led by the Concerned Citizens Coalition, CCC, the group on the second day, took its displeasure to Amnesty International’s office.
In a statement by Convener, Mohammed Shuaibu, the group said it is time for A.I to leave as it has overtime acted against the nation’s interest.
According to Shuaibu, Amnesty International entered a strategic pact with the Iranian government to provide protection for Islamic Movement in Nigeria and other militant groups.
While urging the security agencies to act fast, the Concerned Citizens advised Amnesty International to “take their loot from Iran to other gullible countries where they can act as they wish.”
Failure to do so, the CCC stated that Nigerians would indeed hold it responsible, should there be a resurgence of violent and criminal activities in the country.
“Nigerians are not fools. We have tolerated enough and have consequently decided to act to save our beloved country from imminent collapse by the threat posed by Amnesty International and their cronies.
“We consequently give a charge to the relevant authorities to act fast in the light of the abounding pieces of evidence of the shameful acts of Amnesty International against Nigeria. Our security agencies must investigate their operations in Nigeria in the past five years, which would include sources of funding to avoid such anomaly in the future.
“The Concerned Citizens Coalition is not oblivious of the recently hatched plot by the Government of Iran to cause chaos in Nigeria through the sponsorship of proxy groups and organizations to undertake ventures that are inimical to the interest of Nigeria and also injurious to our nascent democracy.
“We wish to sound a note of warning to Amnesty International that pending their departure from Nigeria; Nigerians would indeed hold it responsible should there be a resurgence of violent and criminal activities in Nigeria” he said.
