50 feared killed as Shiites clash with security operatives

The Islamic movement of Nigeria aka Shiites, has alleged that about 50 of its members were killed by security agents along the Nyanya-Keffi expressway yesterday Monday October 29th.

 

In an interview with Channels TV, a member of the sect group, Mohammed Gamara, said about 200 members of the sect were injured.

“So far, I don’t have the exact number of the casualties and the martyrs but if we say they are more than 50, killed by the Nigerian Army, I don’t think I will be exaggerating,” Gamara said.

The sect members were said to have clashed with the security operatives while they embarked on a march in Abuja. The incident led to a gridlock which lasted for hours along the Nyanya-Keffi expressway forcing many to make their way by foot.
