The procession of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), on Friday was disrupted by the police around Bannex Plaza, Wuse in Abuja.

Eyewitnesses told The Nation that the policemen reportedly fired tear gas canisters and gunshots in the air forcing the Shi’ites and passers-by to scamper for safety.

The IMN procession which started on Sultan Abubakar Road abruptly ended after the gun shot.

The Shi’ites planned to hold a nationwide procession on Saturday in commemoration of their annual Arbaeen trek, sparking fears of another confrontation with security operatives.
