The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has on Sunday, condemned the United States, US, President, Donald Trump, over the killing of the Iranian General, Qassem Soleimani. Speaking, the AYCF President General, Yerima Shettima, said that Trump should be called to order.
A US-backed airstrike had killed Soleimani, who is the Revolutionary Guard General and Head of the elite Quds Force, at Baghdad International Airport.
Soleimani’s killing has sparked rumour of a third world war, likely to start between the US and Iran.
However, Shettima stated that Trump should be made to understand that his actions are inimical to world peace.
Shettima warned that urgent steps should be taken to avert the possibility of a third world war.
He said: “Trump cannot continue to target people for differences in ideas and beliefs, because he is a leading power. You start assassinating people, it is not right in any part of the world.
“Trump should be called to order, that his actions are not right, he cannot continue like this for the sake of peace in the world.
“There are possibilities of a third world war happening as a result of Trump’s actions, however, major steps must be taken to avert unnecessary dangers, because it is avoidable.”
