On Tuesday, the Islamic Movement of Nigeria stormed the street of Abuja in a brawl for the release of the leader in the person of Shiekh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky. This action was followed by the lockdown that was declared by the President Buhari to curb the spread of Coronavirus in Abuja.
It should be recalled that the protest for the release of El-Zakzaky has been going on for a while now and the outcome of the protests sometimes lead to serious injuries and damages. Also, despite International pressure to release the leader of the Islamic Sect, he is still in the government’s custody and thus the protest.
However, the Islamic sect disregarded the lockdown Order and followed through with the protest.
