Several people have reportedly been shot including a Channels TV reporter as two vehicles and a sub-station of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) were set ablaze in Abuja today.
A witness revealed that members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) better known as Shi’ites who were moving on the streets of Abuja set the sub-station ablaze after the police interrupted their protest.
The protest, which started from NITEL junction at Wuse 2, was obstructed by armed policemen who have cordoned the road heading to the national assembly and three arms zone.
Shots were reportedly fired at the protesters as they proceeded toward the Eagle Square.
A reporter was said to be amongst those fired but we could not independently confirm this as at press release.
At least two corpses were recorded at the scene of the attack.
Most of the streets have been deserted as many residents ran to safety.
Recall, the first clash had occurred when Shiites had invaded the National Assembly which resulted in injuries and death of an officer.
