Abuja Massacre: One Year After, Nigerians Call For Justice

Published

Exactly a year ago, devastating violence broke out in Karu, a densely populated suburb of Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, which left at least 16 people killed and scores wounded.

The violence started when Shiite protesters attempted to break a barricade of Nigerian soldiers around the flyover in Karu.

While some of the deceased were killed by panicking drivers trying to escape,  most of them were hit by Nigerian soldiers’ bullets, which they reportedly rained on the protesters and passersby indiscriminately, witnesses said.

Nigerians have today taken to twitter to remember the deceased and further call for justice from concerned authorities.
