Over 100 Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, also known as Shiites, today, stormed the National Assembly and shot a civil defence officer and a police officer.
According to reports, the dreaded Shiite members fought with the policemen at the gate, collected one of their guns and shot the two security operatives. After shooting the security operatives, the Shiite members entered the main entrance and vandalised the gatehouse. They also burnt three vehicles and destroyed over 10 cars.
The sect members unleashed terror on other security operatives when tear-gas canisters were fired to drive them away. The gates to all the National Assembly premises have been shut as staff and other accredited persons ran for their lives.
