The Nigeria Police Force have dispersed a procession of members of the banned Islamic Movement of Nigeria who trooped out to call for the release of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
The protesters in their numbers hoisted two flags, one red and the another black, with the chant: “Labaika yah Hussein. Free Zakzaky”, loosely translated as “Welcome you Hussein. Free Zakzaky”.
Hussein is seen by the Shi’ites as their first imam.
As the protesters marched, a team of police officers followed behind, shooting in the air and firing tear gas canisters.
