Tension in Abuja as El-Zakzaky supporters stage evening protest

MEMBERS of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, also known as Shi’ites,  yesterday, changed their style of protest as they trooped out in their hundreds in the evening to call for the immediate release of  their leader, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.


Members protested at Utako axis in Abuja, over the continued detention of El-Zakzaky who has been in detention since December 2015.

The demonstrators besieged the roundabout leading to Utako Market, and caused artificial hindrances.

The protesters, who formed a circle at the roundabout, were chanting, “Government free El-Zakzaky, release our leader.”

Stern looking police officers also monitored proceedings to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
