Police Disperse Violent Protest by Shiites in Abuja
Police operatives on Monday dispersed a violent protest by some members of the disbanded El-Zakzakky Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), along Aguiyi Ironsi way in Maitama district.
The sect members, who went berserk and were attacking police operatives and other innocent citizens with stones and dangerous weapons, defied the subsisting directive by the FCT Minister, restricting all protests and procession to Unity Fountain.
The sect while executing the unruly act damaged the windscreen of a Police Rapid Response Patrol vehicle.
4. Meanwhile, some members of the sect arrested during the violent protest are currently under investigation. They will soon be arraigned in court.
