Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) on Sunday clashed with officers with the Nigerian Army transporting arms in Zuba, Abuja.

The Nigerian Army, in a statement, shared that members of the group mounted roadblocks while in procession, and efforts by the army to clear the roadblocks were met with violence.

Stones were thrown at both civilian and military vehicles, the statement said, and the sect attempted stealing away some ammunition, forcing the troop to open fire.

3 members of the sect were killed, the army revealed.

The IMN, on the other hand, released a statement refuting the Nigerian Army’s claims, insisting that their protest was peaceful.

The statement was signed by the IMN spokesperson, Ibrahim Musa.

The army lied, the statement said, and video evidence exists showing the army seeking out members of the group to shoot and kill them.

See both statements, photos, and a video from the attack below:

PRESS RELEASE

ISLAMIC MOVEMENT IN NIGERIA ATTACK TROOPS ON ESCORT DUTY AT ZUBA ON SATURDAY 27TH OCTOBER 2018

Troops of Army Headquarters Garrison on official duty escorting ammunitions and missiles from Abuja to Army Central Ammunition Depot in Kaduna State were attacked by some members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) sect at Zuba bridge, of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) at about 3.00pm on Saturday 27th October 2018.

The sect who were supposedly in a procession, established an illegal road block denying motorists free passage. When the troops’ convoy attempted to clear the road block, they met stiff opposition from the sect. Members of the sect used various objects to barricade the road and also pelted the troops with stones and other dangerous items. They smashed both military and civilian vehicles’ windscreens and windows.

They also attempted to overrun the escorts to cart away the ammunition and missiles the troops were escorting. This led to the troops opening fire to extricate themselves. Consequently, troops of 102 Guards Battalion in whose Area of Responsibility the incident occurred rushed to the convoy’s rescue.

Unfortunately, during the encounter 3 members of the sect were killed while 2 soldiers sustained various degrees of injuries and are being treated at a military medical facility.
Meanwhile, normalcy has been restored in the general area and members of the public especially those plying the Abuja – Zuba Road are requested to go about with their normal activities with the assurance from the Nigerian Army that no individual or persons would be allowed to disturb public peace and unprovoked attacks against military convoys.

You are please requested to disseminate this information to the general public through your medium.
Thank you for your cooperation and please accept my highest esteemed regards.
