There have been reports of disturbances in parts of Abuja within the hour. The Shiite protesters are currently running riot on the streets of Abuja.
Reports say the police are currently shooting at alleged Shiite protesters. The mission of the protesters and their identity are unconfirmed at the time of filing this report.
However, there are confirmed reports of stray bullets flying into the NCC office. And there is tear gas in the air in affected areas.
People have been asked to avoid the Maitama axis, Unity Fountain, NICON Junction and environs.
Recall that on Friday, supporters of Sheikh El-Zakzaky caused traffic jams around Central Area resulting in road blocks. Friday’s number of El-Zakzaky’s supports was higher than previous turnouts.
The Police reportedly teargassed the angry Shiites as they marched through streets of Abuja. Some groups of Shiites just over a fortnight ago were at the National Mosque Abuja to protest over their leader with information of President Buhari’s presence in the mosque. They sang and hurled abusive words at the President as they protested.
There were protests last year and there has been at least two this month.
