A religious group, the Shittes, has claimed that the police deliberately killed its members in Kaduna.

Ibrahim Musa, president Media Forum of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, in a statement said, “Heavily armed policemen opened fire in Zaria and Kaduna on religious mourners soon after completing this year’s Ashura processions (A religious rite held by Shiites globally on the 10th of Muharram Islamic calendar).”

As a consequence of these unprovoked attacks, two people in Kaduna lost their lives while many others were injured in both Kaduna and Zaria, said Musa.

Undoubtedly, these Policemen are taking direct orders of Kaduna state Governor, who also was responsible for similar attack in Kaduna only a week earlier, that also resulted in the death of two people and many houses and vehicles torched by the rampaging Policemen.

Besides, similar Ashura processions were held today in major towns and cities across Nigeria including some southern states without any incident.

Only in Zaria and Kaduna were brutality and violence meted on the peaceful mourners.

A number of arrests was also done by these murderous troops of Kaduna state governor, Elrufai.

The Islamic Movement hereby calls on all well-meaning Nigerians and the International community to call El-rufai to order to force him to desist from further spill of innocent Shiites blood, the statement added.
