The FCT Police Command said on Tuesday that it successfully restored calm around Berger round-about after a violent protest by members of the proscribed El-Zakzaky Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) who went berserk and were attacking innocent citizens and police operatives with dangerous weapons.

A statement last night by DSP Anjuguri Manzah, PPRO said, “As a result of the unfortunate incident, one person who sustained an injury and was rushed to the hospital for medical attention has been certified dead by medical doctors on duty.
