The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, on Monday, said security agents killed at least six of its members and injured about 40 other followers of its leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky.
In a short statement, IMN stated that the incident occurred during the group’s Ashura mourning procession in Zaria, Kaduna.
“Security forces have, today, Monday, gunned down at least seven followers of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H), and injured over 40 others during the Ashura mourning procession in Zaria which was observed peacefully across Nigeria and different parts of the world,” the statement read.
Also, the leader of the movement in Zaria, Abdulhamid Bello, alleged that a combined team of security operatives shot indiscriminately at the members.
Bello identified those killed to include Jafar Jushi, Kazeem Magume, Ali Samaru, Muhsin Zakzaky, Umar Fatika and another member who he could not identify as of the time of filing this report.

He added that the total casualty figures had yet to be ascertained, noting, however, that “a lot of them have been rushed to St Luke’s Hospital, Wusasa, while those in critical condition were taken to ABU Teaching Hospital, Shika l, also in Zaria.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Mohammed Jalinge, said he was aware of the incident but had yet to be briefed.
Meanwhile, the procession, which also took place at the everbusy Leventis Roundabout in Kaduna metropolis and Kawo Bridge, was said to be peaceful with no cases of casualties.
A leader of the IMN, Aiyu Umar, who led the procession in Kaduna, said, “Today, we came out in order to commemorate the day of Ashura.
“The importance of the day is a day of seeking justice as Imam Hussein did. We use this date to remind the people that this day is the day of justice and people should emulate Imam Hussein in seeking justice.”

I see some Obidient urchins being dismayed and masturbating with the viral song Emilokan, to set the record straight. All Peter Obi supporters will be disappointed come February 2023 election because Tinubu must be the next President of this Country.
All Nigerian youths i implore everyone to come out and vote massively for Tinubu. He's been ordained by god already to take us to the promise land, Peter Obi is a failure and will continue to fail.
Falseprophet1 confirmed it already
Youths let us all say No to Peter Obi and their imaginary Obidient's. Enough is Enough

Nigeria is better divided.
Too many countries in one.
Let the Igbos go. Let the Yorubas go. Let the Hausas go. Let the Fulanis rule only themselves.
How can people who never agreed to be together be together?

I must commend Punch Newspaper @MobilePunch for posting the news of the brutal murdered of 7 Ashura Mourners on it front page but I strongly condemned the use of the word "clash".
The word "clash" can only be used when the two parties are armed with guns and weapons. The situation where only the security forces are armed with guns and weapons while the other party is unarmed then this is not "clash".
It is quite obvious that using the word "clash" to describe the state-sponsored terrorist attacks by security forces on unarmed innocent and defenseless civilians only enabled this murderous terrorism and criminality.
Security forces are paid to protect civilians and not use live ammunition to kill them. Bullets of security forces should be save for terrorists and murderous armed bandits. Under international laws, killing of unarmed civilians is a war crime.
