Shiites Shutdown Abuja

Abuja, Nigeria Current Affairs April 4 @ 3:30pm

Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria have staged a massive rally in Nigeria's capital, Abuja.
They demand the release of their supreme leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El Zak Zaky who was incarcerated by the Nigerian government in December 2015.
The Nigerian government also killed thousands of Shiites in the northern town of Zaria in Nigeria in the same year and buried them in mass graves. The Shiites say they want their leader released and justice for those who were massacred.
They say they will continue to protest in their millions if need be until their leader is released.
