Reports reaching us from Abuja indicate that security agencies have resorted to mass arrests of mourners who were returning from the peaceful procession.
They are making their frustration to bear, having woefully failed to prevent the procession in Abuja.
Ashura procession was successfully and peacefully done despite the government’s doomsday prophesy, should members of the Islamic Movement be allowed to hold the mourning occasion particularly in Abuja.
Having woefully failed to stop it through propaganda, threats and intimidation, they are venting their anger on members of the Movement through mass detention, involving hundreds.
We will provide details much later.
