Casualties Recorded In Zaria As Police Open Fire On Maulud Anniversary

At least four worshippers were shot and variously injured this morning as a contingent of the Nigerian Police in Zaria indiscriminately opened fire at worshippers celebrating the Annual Maulud event marking the birthday of the Prophet (S).

The police, who arrived as the closing prayers were being offered, opened fire at pointblank range without warning and hurriedly ran into their vehicles and left the scene.

A very colourful Maulud procession that preceded that had ended peacefully without an incident.
