JUST IN: Many feared killed as Shiites clash with Police again

Members of the Shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria this Monday morning clashed with the police in Kano city. A witness said the clash started around Tamburawa, on the outskirts of Kano, when the police tried to stop a Shiite protest.

Over a dozen people including a police officer are feared killed from the violent clash.

The police authorities in the sate have since deployed heavily armed mobile police officers to the area while the major Kano-Zaria road is completely blocked.

One wonders when this Shiites saga will eventually end or be resolved.
