Amnesty International Nigeria has blamed the police for the bloody Shi'ites clash that happened in the Federal Capital City Abuja yesterday July 22nd.

In a statement released by Seun Bakare, the programme manager at Amnesty International Nigeria, the body condemned the police for opening fire on ''unarmed'' Shi'ites members.

According to the statement, six persons were killed in the cross fire. Read the statement below

“Eyewitnesses have told us that six people were shot dead amid a reckless use of lethal force by the Nigerian police against unarmed supporters of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).

This new crackdown is part of a shocking pattern in which security forces have used live ammunition to disperse IMN supporters who are simply exercising their freedom of expression.

“Images of IMN supporters being driven from the streets of Abuja with gunfire demonstrates once again the Nigerian authorities’ resolve to use lethal force rather than the rule of law in addressing the grievances of the IMN.

“The Nigerian authorities must promptly investigate in an independent and impartial manner the police shootings and bring to justice all those suspected of criminal responsibility in fair trials. The police must exercise restraint at all times and use force only when strictly necessary'' the statement reads

RIP to all those that lost their lives, including the DCP and the slain Corps member. May God grant their families the fortitude to bear the losses.

The use of live rounds on the rampaging protesters by the Police is questionable though.

I think the FG would do well to categorise IMN/Shiite as an illegal/terrorist group.

God, protect us from all forms of evil in this Nigeria.

May we not be victims of any evil, both planned or unplanned.

Proactive measures need to be taken to end this disagreement in peace instead of in pieces.

Shiite is a terrorist group and they should be treated as terrorist they are.
Forget about the IMN, the IMN is a camouflage the Shiite are using to cause menace.
You said unarmed protesters, why did they burn down the police station and how did they injure 6 other police men?
The Shiite and Miyetti Allah is a terrorist Group.

No he won't, no Nigerian president will ever end up like morsi.. It will never happen.. We'd rather pray, complain and complain.. That's how we roll, we'd rather take our problems to God in prayer than do anything about it.. Thats how we roll...

Here is my worry ,

Nigeria is heading for a bloody revolution. How you may say?
Well each time the shites protest and you send the police to shoot them they come back again... And again you send the police to shoot them yet again they come back !

The world is watching , Nigerians are watching , the shites are showing all Nigerians that irrespective of guns and death they still fight against the oppression.

How long before other tribes and religions take this method up to fight against the federal government?

The president didn't handle this well.. anyways I guess before something new is built the old must be torn down

It seems the government is unintentionally pushing Nigerian towards a rather undesirable end

Sad indeed
