Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) returned to the streets of Abuja on Tuesday, days after they clashed with police in the nation’s capital.

According to the spokesperson for the Academic Forum of the group, Abdullahi Musa, the Shiites are more resolved than ever to continue the protest until their leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, is granted freedom.
