Katsina: Police, Shi’ite members in bloody Clash

The Police and members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN , otherwise known as the Shiites, Tuesday engaged in a serious clash with the sect claiming the Police arrested so many of their members while scores of others were injured.

A spokesman of the group in Katsina, Dr Abdulkarim Usman, Abdulmumin told The Nation on telephone that the procession started at about 7.30 am and ended abruptly by 8.30 am because of the intrusion of the Police who fired teargas and shot indiscriminately into the air to disperse them.

Abubakar further admitted that none of their members was killed but that scores of them were injured while several others were arrested by the police.

He said “we divided ourselves into several groups and peacefully were marching through the street around Kofar Marusa area of Katsina when the Police intervened and several of our members were either arrested or injured in the ensuing fracas’’

Meanwhile, the leader of the movement in the state, Malam Yakubu Yahaya told newsmen Tuesday in Katsina, called on Nigerians to understand the movement and its orientation adding; “we are almajiris under sheik Ibrahim al Zazzaki, he was born in Katsina, our organization and its orientation is for the progress and growth of the religion worldwide, this procession is a yearly activity”

“The organization is not an association but an ideological movement for the common people, but the Government does not want to understand us.”

When contacted, the Spokesman of the State Police Command, Superintendent Gambo Isah refereed to the earlier warning by the command against the proposed street procession, insisting that the command had to ensure the order was fully complied with.

The Nation recalled that the Police had earlier issued a clarification warning to the movement following their planned procession.

The Police also stated that while Muslims are free to commemorate “Ashura” throughout the country along with other Muslims across the world, it, however, insisted that the ban on processions is however applicable to members of the proscribed Islamic Movement in Nigeria only.

Nigeria needs more than just good leadership....

The citizen's major problem now is an utter lack of the sense of belonging.

These shiit Muslims are terrible for God's sake. What exactly is their problem? I saw on al Jazeera a similar tragedy that happened to shiite Muslims in Iraq and over 30 people were killed. Why can't they just pray in their mosques and allow peace to reign?

Nigeria government is funny

Boko haram took up arms against nigeria u arrest them and realise them say they repented

Bandits that kill people u send governors to go and bag them ,give them their demands

Fulani herdsmen that are blind not to see farms when the owners talk they kill them ...u reward them with ruga


Ipob asking to igbos n south south to be given referendum to determine if they want nigeria or not u kill them and tag then terrorist

Shiit worshipping in their own crazy way ,have never killed any one ...asked u to release their leaders who court has ordered the release ...u kill them called the terrorist

Let me say it and say it loud

If Ipob and shiites pick up arms boko haram would be nothing ooh and don't think south east would be the battle ground ...abuja and sultan palace wont be safe ooh

How I wish true spirit of nationalism and patriotism will make commoners like these defy the police and still go on to protest? But alas! Religion has the strongest grip, especially the fanaticism rein of religion.

Husband: Knocks at the door at midnight.

Wife: You better go back to where you are coming from.

Husband: Open the door or I will throw myself into the swimming pool!!

Wife: Go ahead and kill yourself, do you think I care? so the husband stands near the dark part of the gate and wait for 2 minutes, takes a big stone and throws it into the swimming pool. !!!! puuuummmmm!!!!!!!

Wife hears and opens the door and runs towards the swimming pool. The husband quickly sneaks into the house then locks the door.

Wife: Open the door or I will shout!!!!

Husband: Shout till all the neighbours wake up and come here. And when they come, make sure you tell them where you are coming from by this time of the night with only a pant and a bra.

Does the NPF have the constitutional authority to ban anyone from holding a procession?

Need educated answers not ignorance based opinions, thanks.

The biased Nigerian brown envelope journalists should stop misleading people.
How can an attack by a well armed police on ppl merely marching without even a stick be termed as a "clash"?

You don't understand d issue at stake.
This is nothing but the usual Sunni intolerance which is also exhibited by Sunni backed boko haram, ISIS, al Qaeda etc.
If you don't live or have ever lived in d north, you might ask why they can't pray at home.
But in this same north,the Sunni majority pray right on the highway everyFriday in many places including Abuja.
Ask ppl who live in Abuja.
So,why can't they allow the shias to March and go home,they don't even block the roads totally?
This particular match is observed all over d world including almighty London.
The govt said they have banned Islamic movement of Nigeria, then does it mean every Shia belongs to U
Islamic movt of Nigeria?How do they identify who belongs to IMN among a crowd of shias or do they want to eradicate Shia practice in Nigeria?
The truth is,if you live in the north and you are objective ,you will know that there is no nuisance the Shia minority constitutes that d Sunni majority don't do X 10.
You should know if it was a Shia president that is treating the Sunnis like this,there would've been a full blown war like boko haram by now cos Sunnis have a full blown violent ideology.
