Shiites vs Police: Bloody weekend when two 'Shehu' die and dozens injured

By Ibrahim HassanWuyo

A violent clash between Shiites by Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky led the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and police have claimed two in Kaduna on Sunday.

Many other followers of the fold were injured, even as shops closed as city dwellers ran for safety along Jos Road and adjacent areas in the heart of Kaduna.

Police, when contacted, said they were still waiting for information on the development and that it would be reversed.

One local, Abdul said, “The shooting rented the air around the popular Ahmadu Bello Way on Sunday afternoon, apparently as police made efforts to disperse protesting IMN members.

“The IMN group of the Shiite Islamic sect came out in protest to insist on its demand for the release of its leader, Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, who have been detained since December 2015 after their bloody confrontation with soldiers in Zaria” .

“They defied order. Since then, the Kaduna state government has outlawed the group and banned all forms of protest in the state. “

“Two of the Shehu died during the clash, while several others were injured.”

Kaduna State Police Command PPRO ASP Muhammad Jalige said, the signal about the incident, could not reach it,

He said; “I called the DPO in charge of the area, he didn’t choose, maybe he was busy containing the situation. But as soon as I have details about the incident, I’ll call you. “
