In their protest, Shiites demanded the immediate release of their leader, Sheik Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who has been held out of touch by the Nigerian army since last year December.

The group earlier expressed fear that El-Zakzaky might die due to his bad health.

The Nigeria Police on their usually way, fired tear gas to disperse protesting members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN.

The Federal Government has given contradictory reasons for still detaining the Shiite leader. While the government said in court that it was holding Mr. El-Zakzaky in protective custody, the Foreign Affairs Minister said last week Friday in the United States that he was being held while the government studies the report of the Kaduna panel. 

More details coming soon.
