He said their members were staging peaceful rally when police allegedly attacked them shooting and stabbing the demonstrators around Bauchi Central market which resulted to the death of four persons aged 16 to 20 years.

Yashi lamented that if other Muslims sects and faithfuls of other religions could be allowed to practice their faiths without hindrance, shi’ites should also not be persecuted.

According to him, they have been conducting rallies for over 20 years without violence saying the attack on the members was uncalled for.
