The Police Command in Nigeria’s Federal capital has
restored normalcy to the Gwarinpa area of the city. This is coming after a joint operation with other security agencies.
Persons identified to be members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria also known as Shiites, allegedly caused hardship to motorists and other road users as well as individuals going about their lawful businesses.
According to a press release signed by the FCT Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Adeh Josephine, she said that the persons who were found in their numbers were promptly intercepted by the security operatives and dispersed to prevent them from causing further disruption of public order and peace and damage to public and private assets.
The persons allegedly attacked the security forces with petrol bombs, weapons including stones but were rounded up by the security teams without any casualty.
