Police have clashed with members of the minority Shia Muslim sect in Kano State. Numerous followers of Shi’ite were shot by the police.
The police reportedly whisked away at the least four victims of the attack, and it was not clear if they were dead or alive.
Police confirmed the clashes, but said they could not give details as the operation continues.
At least one person was killed after police opened fire on an annual religious procession of the group. However, AFP is reporting at least 10 deaths, though this has not been confirmed.
