Speaking exclusively to Premium Times, one Shiite leader said;

“It’s the police that ordered the youths to attack us and to destroy our buildings. We shall address a press conference to give account of our encounter later,” he said.

It was gathered that an attempt by the Shiites to address a press conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists secretariat, was botched as all of the journalists went underground.

Also speaking to reporter on the incident, a shop owner at Zango road, Mallam Bala, said the angry youth prevented the Shiite members from entering their communities after being dispersed by police tear gas.

“They were not in their traditional black dress, while being dispersed with police tear gas, but were being identified by vigilant youths who engaged them in a fight. Those who resisted were killed; the house of their leader Mukhtar was burnt down and their Markas (school) is currently being demolished by youths,” he said.

Another resident of the area, Bashir Sani, said the youth broke into the Shiite leader’s house, carted away valuables before setting the house ablaze. “The Shiite members died of injuries sustained while being lynched with sticks and machetes,” he said.

As at the time of filing this report, there was no official confirmation of the number of death.
