There is panic among Abuja residents as police officers clashed with suspected Shiites in the Nigerian capital, on Tuesday, April 17.

Details are still sketchy but residents reported police vehicles chasing the protesters who threw stones and other objects at them.

Most of the violence occurred close to the Wuse market area of the capital.

Traders at the market, however, say there is calm inside.

There are reports that teargas has been used to disperse the protesters, causing panic among road users.

NAIJ.com gathered that the Police Command in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Monday, April 16, said it arrested 115 members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria ( IMN) during a violent protest in Abuja.

The police also debunked stories in the social media that some lives were lost. “No life was lost in the violent protest as the police operatives deployed to quell the protest were professional in handling the situation,” police spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manzah said.

The News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN ) reports that the leader of the sect, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky was arrested by the authorities after a clash with the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff in December 2015.
