BREAKING: Shiites, Police clash in Abuja


Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), better known as Shiites, on Monday clashed with the officers of the Nigeria Police during a protest in Abuja.

According to Channels TV, the incident occurred at 1pm.

DAILY POST had reported that the Shiites last week claimed that its leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, was on the verge of going blind and may also lose his life if not allowed to go for medical treatment.

IMN raised the alarm after the Kaduna State High Court on Thursday, ordered that the Islamic cleric should remain in detention.
