Nigerian forces detain seven Shiites holding up poster of Sheikh Zakzaky



A Magistrates’ Court at Karu in Abuja on Friday granted seven Shiite Muslims bail of N100,000 each on the three-count charges against each of them.

The seven defendants were allegedly charged for the offences of criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly and inciting public peace, contrary to sections 97, 102 and 114 of the Penal Code.

State Prosecutor, Patrick Ogele, had earlier told the court the defendants were arrested by CSP NwakemeEzenwa, in Deidei, along the Abuja-Kaduna expressway on Thursday.

According to Mr. Ogele, the defendants gathered with a common intention of going into the city, and specifically to the court premises where the trial of the Shia leader, IbraheemZakazaky, was ongoing.
