A group of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria,  known as Shi’ites has  broken into the National Assembly complex premises, resulting in an exchange with security operatives.

The Shi’ites broke down the first gate and proceeded to the second, which serves as the main entrance to the complex.

Although the security operatives on ground repelled the protest with gunshots fired into the air to disperse the protesters.

The group is protesting the continued detention of Ibrahim Elzakzaky, their leader.

The Shiites are currently burning some vehicles parked close to the gate while more security operatives are being deployed to assist others.

It's been almost four years Shi'ites leader and his wife were detained by Federal Government. And the group warned them during their last protest  march in Abuja that next time, it may not be so peaceful.  

Possibly, more violence are coming from them until their leader is being released.
