Members of the proscribed Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN popularly known as Shiites on Monday announced that they will embark on a procession tomorrow, September 10.
This was disclosed by IMN spokesperson, Ibrahim Musa in a video on Monday.
He described the procession as “yearly peaceful Ashura procession,” adding that it will hold in major cities across the country.
The procession, he added, is aimed at mourning their members which were brutally killed.
The spokesperson added that the procession will hold despite the alleged plan of Nigeria Police to disrupt the procession.
He insisted that the Shiites group are “peace-loving people. Just like Islam is a religion of peace.
The announcement of a procession by the group is coming even as the police had said that no group should hold protest or procession on major streets in the nation’s capital without a permit.
