The Muslim sect Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) well known as Shiite have taken their protest to the Federal Secretariat on Thursday demanding the release of their leader.
Their attempt to forcefully invade the Federal Secretariat was proved abortive as the police shot in the air to unsettle them.
Residents and passerbys were thrown into fear around the vicinity as they ran away to a safer place as a result of the gunshots.
Recall that the said Shiites protesters injured so many policemen during their Tuesday protest.
No one was shot so far as at the time of this report.
