MORE PICS FROM THE CLASH BETWEEN SHIITES AND THE ARMY IN WUSE 2 ABUJA

There is palpable tension in Abuja as members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and the Army clashed again in parts of the Federal Capital Territory.

This is the third day of the ongoing clash between security operatives and the Shiite members in Abuja.

Yesterday’s clash began with the convergence of the Shiites at the nation’s capital for the annual Arbaeen symbolic trek, which also served as cover for a protest march against the continued detention of their spiritual leader by the federal authorities.

Violent scenes marred the rituals, officially due to end today as some of the sect members were killed in the confrontation with the Army in the Maraba- Nyanya metropolis of Abuja.

When the crisis first unfolded on Saturday, troops from the Army Headquarters Garrison at Zuba, Gwagwalada Area Council of the FCT, reportedly gunned down six followers of the sect. The Army, however, claimed responsibility for three deaths.
