Breaking: Tension in Abuja as Shiites take over streets (See Photos)

Updated 22 September, 2016
The Vanguard reports that Shiites demanded the immediate release of their leader, Sheik Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who has been held out of touch by the Nigerian army since last year December.

The group earlier expressed fear that El-Zakzaky might die due to his bad health.

Many people were feared dead after a bloody clash between Nigerian soldiers and the members of IMN in Zaria, Kaduna state on December 13-14, 2015. 

The army claimed that it had responded to the Shia followers’ attempt to kill the Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai. 

But this claim has been strongly denied by the Shiites and several human rights organizations who argue that the attack was pre-planned.
