Shi’ites again clash with Police, five arrested

Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria have again clashed with the Police at the Federal Secretariat, Abuja, today, just after storming the National Assembly complex on Tuesday, during which they shot two policemen and also torched three cars and damaged many other vehicles and property.

The Police fired gunshots and tear gas canisters to disperse the protesters, while five Shi’ite members were apprehended by the security operatives.

Today’s confrontation sparked panic as workers, commuters and motorists fled to avoid being caught in it.
The sect members later regrouped at another location to continue with their protest.
