The Barkin Ruwan bypass villagers in Kaduna State have said that there was tension on Tuesday morning during the procession by Shiitte members as the 3 people killed were hoodlums trying to take advantage of the procession.

The village head of the Barkin Ruwa community, Alhaji Idris Abdullahi said the procession was peaceful, until hoodlums tried to take advantage and were shot by the police.

He said members of the group came out as early as 6.30 am Tuesday morning and have agreed to hold the procession for just 30 minutes due to the fragile security in the state, but hoodlums took advantage of the procession.

Already, the situation is calm as everyone is going about their normal businesses at at the time our reporter visited the community.

It was earlier reported (not Press) in the day that 3 Shiites members were allegedly killed by police during procession.

But the police denied the alleged killings, noting that the group was making up stories to win public sympathy.

The force through its spokesman of the Kaduna police command, Yakubu Sabo, disclosed, “Based on the report we have, there was no casualty. We received a report that they were sighted around Bakin Ruwa bypass, and our men went there and dispersed them professionally,” he said.

”That has been their (IMN) approach to make frivolous claims. This is a group that has been proscribed by the state and federal government. The police will not fold its arms; we dispersed them professionally. There was no report of casualty. They are just making this claim to seek public sympathy.”

He equally directed all supervisory Assistant Inspectors General of Police to put in place concrete measures to prevent the procession.
