Panic as six persons die during a clash between Shiites and Security operatives in Abuja

There’s presently pandemonium as residents and motorists seek safe havens after gunshots from security agents rented the air in Gwarinpa Estate along the Kubwa Expressway in Abuja on Tuesday. (Read More Here).

It was gathered that the disruption in commercial activities in the area is as a result of a clash between members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) otherwise known as Shi’ites and security agents. It is reported that at least six persons were reportedly killed in the incident while many sustained injuries.

Joint security operatives were said to have opened fire on members of the sect when they were about to round off their Arbaeen Symbolic Trek, Sahara Reporters gathered. The incident, which occurred at the Gwarinpa gate near Galadimawa when the gun-wielding security agents arrived at the scene, threw the trek into confusion as people scampered for safety. Two people were also said to be shot at a new generation bank inside the estate.

Members of the sect had on Tuesday morning come out in continuation of their procession to mark the fortieth day of the m*rder of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad who was killed on 10th Muharram. The protesters in their numbers hoisted two flags, one red and the other black, with the chanting songs.
