British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright releases statement on the violence in Zaria

 
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright has released a statement on the violent clash between Nigerian Army and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria. He called on the Nigerian military to conduct their operations within the rule of law. The statement after the cut:

"Like many across Nigeria, I am following with concern the reports of violence in Zaria over the weekend between the Nigerian security forces and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria. I am further concerned at reports that protests in Kaduna have turned violent.
Nigeria’s religious and ethnic diversity adds a great deal to this country’s rich culture. It is important, therefore, that Nigerians of all faiths are allowed to assemble and worship freely. In addition, I call on the security forces to conduct their operations within the rule of law, and for demonstrators to ensure any protests are peaceful and equally act within the law.
