The Shiite members took to the street at the Berger area in Wuse to demand the release of their leader Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat who have been in detention since December 2015.

In a bid to disperse them, the police fired teargas canisters and allegedly fired gunshots into the air.
