One million, including Christian cleric, commemorate Arbaeen in Nigeria

 

About one million people participated in Arbaeen procession held in Nigeria from Kaduna city to Husainiyya Baqiyyatullah, Zaria city, on Monday.
The procession, which started from Kano State last week, was disrupted by the Boko Haram Takfiri group, when a suicide bomber detonated an Improvised Explosive Device among the pilgrims, killing 24 of them.

According to the Media Team Leader of the 2015 Arbaeen procession, Ibrahim Usman, the trek from Kaduna to Zaria is about 75km.
Among those who joined the procession on Monday was Pastor Yohanna Buru of the Evangelical Church in Kaduna.
