Islamic Movement of Nigeria in one of their usual procession

Two members of the Shiite movement were reportedly killed on Saturday as the group tried to rebuild its school destroyed near Zango road, Tudun Wada in Kaduna, witnesses said.
Ten other members were injured in the attack.
This has caused panic as many residents of Tudun Wada, UngwanMuazu, Kinkinau remained indoors. Those caught up along NnamdiAzikwe way and other streets scampered for safety.
BalaZango, a shop owner along Zango Road, said the issue was getting out of hand as hundreds of youth were advancing towards UngwanMuazu to hunt for Shiite members.
UngwanMuazu is among the areas in Kaduna, where many Shiites reside.
Some witnesses said AwwalMaikyau, the Special Adviser on Youth to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, was attacked as he attempted to mediate.
“AwwalYaroMaikyau, the Governors SA on youths whose house is close to the scene of the incident, was also attacked while trying to mediate between them and the irate youths,” a family member confirmed.
The Shiites said they were attacked as they tried to rebuild the sect’s school that was attacked on Tuesday.
“Some thugs came to attack us with weapons, insisting that we must be evicted completely from the place,” one member told PREMIUM TIMES.
“Police arrived at the scene and went with some of our members and some community members for settlement.
The police spokesperson, AliyuUsman, told PREMIUM TIMES police monitoring the situation.
“Please be patient, we are monitoring the situation, we shall get back to you later,” he said.
