Again, Shiites stage another march in Abuja today

Unrelenting Shi’ite Muslim protesters today began another march in the capital Abuja, despite Monday’s fatalities.

According to witnesses, the air was thick with teargas as soldiers and police officers made some arrests. Gunshots could also be heard in the capital.

The Shiites marched in protest against the continued detention of its leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat. Both have been in detention since December 2015, following a fracas between El-Zakzaky followers and the army in Zaria.

  1. They need to declare them as an illegal group. Do you know they even wore a uniform? Meaning they have other plans
