Soldiers opened fire on a peaceful free Zakzaky procession in Kaduna, injuring at least three on Sunday the 9th of June 2019. The procession was concluding by the Kaura motors along the popular Nnamdi Azikiwe Express bypass when the soldiers arrived in their truck, and without warning, opened fire using live ammunition.
Three people ended up with gunshot wounds, on the back, the arm and the thigh respectively. They have all been rushed to the hospital for medical attention.
Free Zakzaky processions have become a common occurrence everywhere and especially in Kaduna, where the ailing Sheikh and his wife continue to be inexplicably be detained despite their dire medical situations.
Just a few days ago, there was a scary report that the wife’s health condition had turned for the worst and it was thought she was going to give up the ghost. This has however not made the authorities to heed to the warnings of the foreign medical experts that their situation was pretty bad and should be flown abroad for expert management.
