A very huge free Zakzaky procession was today, Wednesday 24th July, 2019 again held in the heart of Kaduna despite deployment of Stern looking joint security agents armed to the teeth with heavy weaponry.
The procession defiantly held and ended peacefully without an incident. Thousands of participants, armed with only posters, banners and a strong faith in their cause chanted free Zakzaky slogans.
Earlier, the Nigerian police force headquarters, Kaduna had issued a statement that it would heavily deal decisively with any member of the Islamic Movement that ventures into any form of protest in the state. The statement said it has reports that Shiites would protest to call for the release of their leader and also to mark what the police labeled “Harisawa Day” whatever that means.
It however was not sufficient to deter members.
