Reports claim that a passerby in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja has been killed by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force while shots were fired at members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) otherwise known as Shi’ites.
The Herald gathered that the incident happened around the popular Berger area, close to Wuse in the FCT.
The procession, which started at Utako ended at Berger, due to the pandemonium as residents ran for safety when the police started firing live rounds and tear gas canisters.
The body of the passerby caught in the melee was said to have been moved away by the police.
The ‘30 Minutes Quiz Competition’ and other pro-active, well-thought-out programmes will not only have an immediate impact, but are very beneficial in the long run to the youths and the Country at large.

Earlier, The Herald reported that members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, on Monday, demanded the release of their leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat.
They demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai should free their leader because their day of reckoning was drawing near.
A leader of the IMN, Yunusa Lawal, during a press conference on Monday in Kaduna said: “We would like to let El-Rufai and his master know that the day of reckoning is very near indeed.
“Justice will be served and no amount of blackmail and misuse of state power could avert this whirlwind of justice from catching up with them all.
“We will intensify our peaceful campaigns until justice is done to the victims of Zaria genocide of December, 2015 and Sheikh Zakzaky and all those still being held regain their freedom.”
The IMN, also known as Shi’ites, further dismissed the statement made by the Attorney General of Kaduna State, Aisha Dikko.
