Following Saturday’s violent clash between the Nigerian Army and members of the Muslim sect, Shiite, in Zaria, Kaduna State, which reportedly led to the death of scores of the sect’s members, the Shiite group on Sunday, took to the streets of Bauchi, Potiskum in Yobe State and Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State to protest the killings of their members.
Recall that following the violent clash, which paralysed commercial and vehicular activities in the ancient city of Zaria, the Nigerian Army and the Muslim sect have continued to trade blames as to who instigated the clash.
While the Nigerian Army alleged that members of the sect attempted to assassinate the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, when he visited Zaira on Saturday, the sect has denied it, describing the allegation as “blatant lies.”
