26 Shias wrongfully charged in Nigeria



Some 26 Shia were charged with criminal conspiracy, unlawful assembly, disturbance of public peace and inciting public disturbance.

The Prosecuting counsel, Sunday Ekwe, told the court that the accused persons committed the offence on October 12, at about 1PM.

Ekwe alleged all the 26 Shia members conspired and assembled themselves and blocked Ibrahim Taiwo Road up to Kofar Mata to Emir Palace.

The Chief Magistrate, Muhammad Idris, granted bail to the unlawfully-called ‘accused persons’ in the sum of N100,000 each with two reliable sureties each in like sum.

It is worth mentioning that the Shiites suffered a number of attacks by the Nigerian security forces in a clear violation to the right of belief and expression
