Dozens of Nigerian Muslims, mostly supporters of prominent cleric Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky, have demonstrated in Abuja to condemn Saudi Arabia for the war on Yemen and its continued blockade of the impoverished country.

They said the bombing of civilian targets by the Saudi-led coalition and its siege on Yemen has caused a serious humanitarian situation there.

The Saudi war has escalated recently as Riyadh has intensified its aerial and ground attacks, worsening the humanitarian situation in Yemen. The protesters said the ultimate goal of Saudi Arabia is to reinstate the former Yemeni president.

The protesters said human feeling should prevail over the intrigues of the power struggle on the situation in Yemen. They added that the senseless shelling of innocent civilians in Yemen must stop, while the international community has a moral responsibility to put an end to the carnage.
