Zaria Shi’ite incident: ‘Police to conduct enquiry’ – Military
The Nigerian Army has said as soon as order is restored to the situation in Zaria city and its environs, the Police will conduct an enquiry and the public will be informed while urging to go about their lawful business and report any suspicious persons or incidents to the police.
Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations in a statement said this and described the clash between the Army and the sect members as unfortunate.
“Yesterday’s incident involving clashes between detachments of the Nigerian Army, accompanying the Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General T. Y. Buratai and  followers of Sheikh Ibrahim El Zak-Zaky, suspected to be members of the Shiite Sect in Zaria, leading to loss of lives as a result of the Shiite group members’ blocking roads and not allowing other passers-by to go about their lawful businesses and activities, was most unfortunate.
“The Nigerian Constitution guarantees the rights of any group of persons and Sheikh El Zak Zaky’s followers to hold a peaceful march or procession unhindered, but it also guarantees other people’s rights of way on public highways. It is important to note that over the years this group has subjected ordinary citizens using public roads to untold hardship, delays, threats and disruption simply because they insist on using public space irrespective of inconvenience and hardship on other law abiding citizens and motorists. This cannot be tolerated and must stop” he stressed.
