Abuja residents are currently in panic as police officers clashed with suspected Shiites in the Nigerian capital.

According to PREMIUM Times, some residents reported police vehicles chasing the protesters who threw stones and other objects at them.

It was gathered that most of the violence occurred close to the Wuse market area of the capital. Traders at the market, however, say there is calm inside.

A reporter close to the scene of the violence revealed that teargas has been used to disperse the protesters, causing panic among road users.

Tuesday’s incident follows the arrest of 115 Shiites on Monday after police forcefully dispersed the protesters, who then threw stones and other objects at security operatives.
