Just In: Deputy Commissioner of Police Killed in Shiites, Police Clash

Protesting members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria have shot dead a senior police officer, DCP Umar, who was in charge of Operations at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command.

Umar was reportedly gunned down as he tried to pacify the rampaging Shi’ite members who disrupted commercial activities and vehicular movement during their protest at the Federal Secretariat, Abuja, today.

He was immediately taken to an undisclosed hospital where he gave up the ghost.

It was observed that while the fracas lasted, operatives of the Department of State Services redirected commuters and motorists to the Muhammadu Ribadu Road to link main Asokoro outside the presidential villa.

The members of the IMN have been protesting against the continued detention of their leader Sheikh Ibraheem el-Zakzakky.
