Members of the Shi’ite Movement in Nigeria have again on Thursday afternoon clashed with the police at the Federal Secretariat, Abuja.

The police fired gunshots and tear gas canisters to disperse the protesters while five Shi’ite members were apprehended by the security operatives.

Punch reported that the confrontation led to workers, commuters and motorists fleeing the environment to avoid being caught in the fracas.

The sect members later regrouped at another location to continue with their protest.

They had stormed the National Assembly complex on Tuesday, during which they shot two policemen and also torched three cars and damaged many other vehicles and property.

Forty suspects were arrested in connection with the incident.
