The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), has defied police by  holding its annual Ashura procession in Abuja.

According to a top member of the Shi’ites group, Abdulai Musa, the procession started in Wuse market and ended around Berger about from 8: oo am and ended by 8:30 am.

Musa told our reporter that the procession was peaceful and well organised.

IMN had on Monday petitioned the Human Rights Commission, United Nations and the European Union over Tuesday’s Ashura procession which it claimed that the police are preparing to disrupt and attack its members.
