Again: Police shot mercilessly on peaceful protesters in Abuja

Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) continued their peaceful protests on Monday 22/7/2019 in Abuja to demand for the immediate and unconditional release of their leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife who are both in dire need of urgent medical attention.

Suddenly, some minutes after starting the protest, the Nigerian Police interrupted the protest and started firing teargas and live bullets on the peaceful protesters which resulted in the martyrdom of at least six protesters and injuring tens of them.

The police also arrested a number of the protesters and took away some of the martyred bodies with them as well.
