Nigeria Police have commendably shown uncommon restraint as Shiite youths, protesting the continued detention of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, grounded the Federal Secretariat complex, Abuja, taking over the roads in the area.

The angry youths, armed with stones, chased away a police team and overturned a traffic warden cabin on the road.

They also reportedly injured the Federal Secretariat Divisional Police Crime officer in the face after he asked them to stop harassing motorists.

Chanting “Free El-Zakyzaky,” the Shiite members challenged the Police to dislodge them.

More Policemen were heading to the scene as at the time of filing this report.
