#ArbaeenTrek2017: Police Kills 200 Level Engineering Student And One Other In Kano

Once again the police have reportedly fired upon and killed Shia minority Muslims in Nigeria as they engaged in peaceful religious observations. Police were reported to have gathered and later to have fired upon and killed Shia Muslims during the Arbaeen trek in Kano. The police reportedly carted some of the dead bodies away.

The Police Public Re­lations Officer in charge of Kano Command, DSP Musa Magaji Majia, however, told journalists on telephone that police did not kill IMN (Islamic Movement in Nigeria) mem­bers. According to him, the Shia members, during a meeting with the police were advised not to engage in the proces­sion due to prevailing securi­ty situation. Majia added that the Com­mand only drafted a team of police men who peacefully dispersed the Shia members.
