189 Shiite Members Remanded In Prison

Some 189 Shiite members, who thought they could be granted bail on Wednesday, had their hopes dashed, as a Kaduna Magistrate Court remanded them in prison.

The members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria were arrested during the December 12, 2015 clash with the army in Zaria.

The bloody clash reportedly claimed hundreds of lives.  Already a 13-man Judicial Commission of Inquiry had been set up by the Kaduna State Government to unravel the circumstances surrounding the cause of the clash.

After the clash, police arrested over 190 suspects whom the police said were arrested for various offences.

At the hearing on Wednesday, the Magistrate Court, however, granted bail to four Shiite minors with the sum of 100,000 Naira each and two reliable sureties who will deposit valid means of identification.
