BREAKING: Shiite Protesters Shut Down Federal Secretariat
The endless battle between Shiite youths protesting the continued detention of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and the federal government took a new twist on Monday.
The youths invaded the federal Secretariat complex, Abuja and shut it down.
The secretariat complex is a few metres from the National Assembly and the Presidential Villa.
The youths, who were armed with stones, chased away a police team and overturned a traffic warden cabin on the road.
They also reportedly injured the Federal Secretariat Divisional Police Crime officer in the face after he asked them to stop harassing motorists.
Chanting “Free El-Zakyzaky,” the Shiite members dared the Police to engage and dislodge them.
