Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria on Thursday morning again clashed with the police at the Federal Secretariat, Abuja.
The police fired gunshots and tear gas to disperse the protesters while about five Shi’ite members were apprehended by the security operatives.
The clash sparked panic as anxious workers, commuters and motorists fled in fear.
The sect members later regrouped at another location to continue with their protest.
On Tuesday, they stormed the National Assembly complex during which they shot four policemen and damaged many vehicles and properties in the complex.
