Security personnel evacuate a victim of the violent protest by members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (a.k.a Shiites) in Abuja on Monday (22/7/19). The Shiites were demanding the release of their leader, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who has been in detention for alleged murder since Dec. 2015.

Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Shiites have claimed that a clash between them and the police on Saturday had claimed the lives of three.

Ibrahim Musa, President Media forum of the IMN (Shiites), said a combined force of armed (police) men and thugs violently attacked members of the Movement who were conducting the Ashura mourning session in Kaduna.

“Today, Saturday evening, at Hayin Bello neighborhood, a team of policemen attacked a gathering of members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria holding the annual Ashura mourning commemorating the brutal assassination of Imam Husein, the Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (S) and killed 3 persons instantly.”

“Those killed are: Abubakar Talle, Ali Rigasa, and an unnamed person, with many people injured by gunshots,” he said.

He alleged that vehicles of those who attended the mourning session were vandalized, while a police vehicle caught fire after it fell into a gutter, resulting in the burning of a house close to it.

“This year’s Ashura mourning  started on Thursday 20/08/2020 coinciding with the beginning of new Islamic calendar 1442 in two other neighborhoods peacefully and is scheduled to culminate on the tenth of Muharram next week,” he said.
