Many Arrested As Soldiers Beat Up Female Shiite Members In Abuja

Despite the ban on Shiites procession in Abuja, members of the sect have continued to march on the streets of the nation’s capital at intervals.

There was outcry on Tuesday morning as some female members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) were beaten up by soldiers along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway in the nation’s capital.

According to a report by Daily Trust, Soldiers, who mounted strategic location on the ever-busy road, had flagged the vehicle conveying the women.

Immediately, they alighted, the soldiers whipped and kicked the defenseless women.

They were later whisked into a van parked by the road. The soldiers searched the vehicles in the bid to identify IMN members.

“Come out now! You are one of them!” a well-built armed soldier barked at a man in one of the buses.

A lady, who preferred anonymity, said she and two other members of her family were on their way to Jabi Motor Park when the passengers on the bus conveying them were forced out of the bus.

“Before my mother get on the bus again, the driver was forced to move on. We could not help but cry hard as we don’t know what will happen to her.”

As at the time of filing this report we can not verify how many persons were arrested.

WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the Shiites were moving to a location where they were to hold a procession.

Recall that on July 28, 2021, a Kaduna High Court discharged and acquitted Sheik Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, IMN Leader, who spent seven years in detention.

He was arrested after some of his followers clashed with soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna State, in 2015.

The Kaduna State government had charged him with culpable homicide.
