Video: Police, Shiite Members Clash In Abuja

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, popularly known as Shiites, on Monday clashed with the police during their protest along Unity Fountain, Maitama, Abuja.

The clash is coming after the protesters stormed the Institute For Peace and Conflict Resolution Abuja, in Abogo Largema a Central business district area in Abuja, demanding the release of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and lamenting over his continued detention without trail for over two years.

The protest is reported to have started from the Unity Fountain, beside Transcorp hotel.

The Police officers in order to disperse the protesters fired teargas, forcefully dispersing them.

This eventually led to resistance, forcing the protesters to throw stones at the police patrol vehicle.
