Pandemonium broke out at the Federal Secretariat , Abuja this morning
after members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria also known as Shi’ites,
clashed with officers of the Nigerian Police Force.

members were staging a protest, demanding the release of their leader,
Ibrahim El-Zakzaky when some of their members and police officers in the
Secretariat had an argument which degenerated into a fight. The police
officers fired gunshots and tear gas to disperse the protesters while
about five Shi’ite members were apprehended by the security operatives.


faceoff comes two days after some Shiite members invaded the National
Assembly complex during which four policemen were injured and many cars
destroyed in the complex.
