A Bloody day in Zaria

The Nigerian army deadly attacked on Saturday on residence of the leader of the Islamic Movement, Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky, which led to the death and injury of dozens of the movement's members (December 13, 2015).
A large number of soldiers torched and destroyed several parts of al-Zakzaky’s house before arresting the cleric. The army eventually overtook the home of the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, killing many people.

Nigerian army had also targeted Shias in August last year as people were holding a demonstration to condemn Israeli attacks on the Palestinians.
Shias in Nigeria have also been targeted by the Takfiri miltiant group, Boko Haram.
More than 20 people were killed on November 27 in a Boko Haram bomb attack targeting Nigerian Shia Muslims during an annual religious procession in the northern state of Kano.
