Soldiers, policemen and personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) are patrolling areas around Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, following protests by members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) on Monday.
News men reported that the Shi’ites were demanding the release of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
News men reported that the security operatives have also taken over the Unity Fountain and its surroundings, having earlier dispersed the protesters.
A witness, Bola Adeniran, told News men that trouble started when the IMN members were refused entry by the operatives, into the Unity Fountain where they normally sit-out to demand the release of their leader.
News men said that the El-Zakzaky disciples have been staging protests in parts of the country to demand the release of the Cleric.
