The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), on Tuesday dared the police and the Department of State Security (DSS), 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 at about 8:00am, and ended around Berger 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 the police are preparing to disrupt, and attack its members.

The Police had also issued a stern warning, saying the group remained proscribed by the government.
