Members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Wednesday occupied streets around the popular NEPA roundabout, along Ahmad Bello way in Kaduna, in protest and demanding the unconditional release of their spiritual leader Sheikh Ibraheem Al-zakzaky, who has been in detention since December 2015.
The protesters, most of whom wore black apparels, carried banners with different inscriptions while chanting “We demand for justice; free our leader; we are Nigerians”.
Numbering over 100, the Shiites, mostly youths, were seen being monitored by armed Policemen stationed around the protest venue.
All effort to speak with a member of the group was futile due to uncoordinated manner of the protest.
