Photos: 17 injured as angry youths attack Shi'ite group in Kano State

Members of the Shi'ite group were holding the annual procession of Ashura, and passing through some strategic areas in the Kano metropolis, when they were attacked by youths, some of whom brandished knives, swords, machetes and cutlasses.


The Kano State Police Command, DSP Magaji Musa Majia, who confirmed that 17 members of the group were injured, said the clash occurred at different locations within the state metropolis including Kofar-Mata, Murtala Muhammad Hospital and Kano Abattoir.
"We have rescued 138 members of the Shi'ite mostly women and children and they are still under our custody. There was no death on both sides and normalcy has since returned to Kano," he told Daily Trust.

Mallam Sa'idu Isa Yakasai, one of the Shi'te leaders in Kano said they were attacked by hoodlums shortly after the procession.
"Scores of Shi’ite members mostly adults were injured during the attack. I saw about 10 of our members who sustained various degrees of injury in their head. I was able to rescue many children during the attack. It was a coordinated attack. This is quite unfortunate. This is not the first time our people organize such a procession. In fact it is an annual event not only in Nigeria but worldwide and it is always peaceful. Even this year’s procession was peaceful because it was after the procession that the hoodlums attacked our people," he said.

Shi'ites are enemies of Alquida, BH and IS. Buhari is Sunni - managers of all these terror groups.

And that's how violence starts gradually until it becomes uncontrollable and graduates to terrorism.
