4 Feared Dead As Soldiers, Shi’ite Muslims Clash In Zaria

Four people were reportedly killed by soldiers on Friday afternoon, following a clash between soldiers and members of Shi’ite Islamic sect at PZ area of Zaria, Sabon Gari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

According to an eyewitness, the incident happened when members of the sect abducted two soldiers who attempted to stop the sect members from procession marking the Qudus Day, a day set aside by the Shi’ite movement in Nigeria in support of the Palestinian struggle in the Middle East.

The intervention of some soldiers to rescue their colleagues from the angry sect members numbering over 300 triggered the violence, as soldiers allegedly started firing gunshots to disperse the increasing crowd. One of the victims was said to be the son of renowned Islamic preacher Sheikh El-Zazzaki, leader of the sect.

The clash, which lasted for over two hours, however, paralysed business activities in the ancient city, as traders hurriedly closed down their offices and shops and rushed to their homes for fear of being caught up in the attack.

When contacted, spokesman of 1 Division of Nigerian Army, Colonel Usman Abdul, declined commenting on the matter, saying he was yet to get the full details of what happened. [Channels]

  3. i have been saying it since 2011 after my conviction that nigeria will never stand because it’s foundation was laid on falsehood and it is against the will of God.now we are already in the begining of sorrows which will never end untill we go our saprate ways,but the so called leaders due to their short sightedness has remained adamant to the truth all because there is no God in their agenda.we all knows that muslems represent the dark world and opposers of truth u don’t expect them to fear God b/c they never knew him from the begining and what they are doing is the work of their father the devil.so am telling us here that our problem is not lack of good leadership but the force marriage in 1914 by one satan lugard and the event was never a will of God.that is why this bad and ugly were unfolding and untill we agree that we are not meant to be one both in ideology,culture,behaviours,religion,understanding,and values.,if not am sorry we are far from the peace.b/c the muslem always blame others for evil de do.

  4. Saddenly, almost you (social media sites) are the ‘harbinger of the predicament’ that we found ourselves today in Nigeria. Pathetically,you’re so ‘sycophants’ that easily infiltrated and connived with,if not,you wouldn’t’ve been over-hyped any news pertinents to mosleems deeds and ‘nip the bud’ of others all the sake of US are the controller of the Internet/social media globally. Verily, you(social media) websites are the’dark agents that beclouding the mosleems horizon’with your devilish and ‘hanky-panky’ maligning news about mosleems only. The incident that happened at Osun state couple of months ago is the epitome of you’nip Christians attrocities in the bud’, where some church members attacked and dressed in mosleems way to pretend like mosleems and attack their neighbour church all for the sake of enmity and tarnishing Islamic religion if not for god intervention. Why did you(social websites) regarded all mosleems groups as ‘sects,or terrorists’ groups, are you so piety, God fearing,holy to that extent because you always behaves as ‘sanctimoniously and supercillously’ people,but solely bogus ones? Finally, ‘without send the ox is gore’, let me assure you(social websites) agents,christians, US, and the whole world that no matter your evil plan or bad news you over-hyped against islam religion will not disband neither dispelled it but, ‘solid as rock!’ your evil plan will only solidify islamic religion!
