Police in Kaduna, under the direct instruction of the governor, Nasiru Elrufai last evening indiscriminately opened fire without provocation using live ammunition on a peaceful free Zakzaky protest, injuring at least one bystander.
The procession, which took off from the popular Kabala junction area of the ever busy Nnamdi Azikiwe Western bypass express way, had already reached the termination point at the Dutsinma road junction area of the same express way when the event took place.
It was not clear the extent of casualties yet following this barbaric action, but at least 3 other people were feared arrested in addition to the lone person shot on the leg. All casualties appear to be people who were not even part of the procession.
The police in Kaduna would appear to resort to their old ways of brutality again by shooting at peaceful protesters who were only calling for the enforcement of a valid court order being flagrantly flouted by the government.
