Some Shi’ites members, on Saturday, teamed up with June 12 protesters in Abuja, to demand the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
It was said that the protesters stormed major roads in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to demonstrate against “bad governance” under the Buhari.
They reportedly chanted songs and held placards with inscriptions such as, ‘Buhari must go’, ‘Police brutality has not stopped’, ‘Digital right is human right’.
Among the protesters were members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) better known as Shi’ites, who have been protesting the continued detention of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.“Buhari must go… free El Zakzaky… stop injustice,” the protesters were said to be chanting as they marched along the streets.
Unconfirmed reports also said the police fired teargas at the demonstrators.
