The peaceable protest, which started from Utako space, paralysed site visitors and business actions alongside the axis, leaving passersby scampering for security.
Spokesperson for the IMN, Abdullahi Musa, stated the motion wouldn’t be deterred within the demand for justice no matter the intimidation by the police.
He stated, “It’s excessive time the Buhari regime understood that their brutality can’t cease us, it solely offers us extra braveness on what we’re doing.
“Most of us are hoping to be killed on this trigger, so killing can’t cease the every day free-Zakzaky protest going down in Abuja.”
