police men seen during a protest

Protesting Shi’ite members have again clashed with armed policemen and soldiers at Banex, Wuse 2, Abuja, on Tuesday.

Our correspondent gathered that during the latest encounter in Wuse, the Shi’ite members stoned the security operatives who responded with tear gas.

Many vehicles were said to have been vandalized during the clash with business owners locking up their facilities.

Stones and other objects littered the scene of the clash as the area looked deserted.

Pedestrians around the area were forced to raise their hands in the air by the stern-looking policemen.
