One person identified as Muhsin Abdallah was feared killed on Tuesday when the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command dispersed protesting members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) at Maitama, Abuja.
FCT police command was however silent over the incident even as the sect alleged that the deceased was killed by stray bullets fired by the police operatives while many others sustained injuries.
The spokesperson of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, alleged that “the police fired at the Shi’ites procession killing Muhsin Abdallah and injuring scores of others.”
Members of the IMN were demanding the release of their detained leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife when the incident occurred.
However, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command said it dispersed the procession by members of the proscribed IMN after a violent protest in the Maitama area of Abuja.
