Sounds of gunshots rocked the air as members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) returned to the streets of Abuja on Tuesday.
The IMN members, who are demanding the release of Ibrahim Zakzaky, their leader, clashed with the police on Monday.
At least 15 people were killed in the violence while properties, including two vehicles of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), were torched.
Precious Owolabi, a reporter at Channels Television, and Usman Umar, a deputy commissioner of police, were among those who lost their lives in the incident.
Although no casualty had been recorded as of the time of filing this report, the IMN protesters who were dispersed by the police had started regrouping around Wuse zone 2.
The police went after some of the protesters who sought cover at the Bannex Plaza in the nation’s capital.
Security operatives are still looking for the members of the group who are hiding in different shops in the area.
