Shi’ites Police reportedly clash with Islamic group in Kano

Two persons have been reportedly killed in a fresh clash between members of the Ibrahim Zakzaky led Shi’ia sect and mobile police men in Kano.
According to a report by TheCable, the two persons have been identified as a leader of the Shi’ia sect and an unidentified female member of the sect.

It was reported that trouble started after the police intercepted the annual Arbaeen annual trek of the group in the town.

It was also reported that sect members were intercepted at the popular Lado overhead bridge along Zaria road in Kano metropolis.

The alleged disruption by mobile policemen reportedly led to many people sustaining injuries as the security operatives allegedly fired teargas and live bullets.

Spokesman of the Kano state police command, Musa Majia, is yet to react to the allegation nor confirm the alleged clash.

Shi'ites Outlawed
Activities of the group and its members have been outlawed in Kano among other states.

The leader of the sect, Ibrahim Zakzaky, has been in detention since December 2015 when his followers clashed with some soldiers.
