See Photos/Video of Injured Policeman on Stretcher as Shiite Members Invades National Assembly
The two security personnel shot by members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, popularly known as Shiites, who invaded the National Assembly on Tuesday are currently receiving medical treatment at the clinic within the complex.
The rampage is connected with the continued detention of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.
Mr El-Zakzaky has been arrested since December 2015 after soldiers clamped down on his supporters and killed at least 347 of them. The soldiers accused the Shiite group of blocking a major road that was to be used by army chief Tukur Buratai.
Zakzaky is facing charges for culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace.
Dozens of other Shiite members have been killed in different protests mainly in Abuja and Kaduna since the December 2015 incident.
They had protested to the gate of the National Assembly last Thursday and House Leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, who met them at the gate had said that their message would be delivered to the appropriate quarters.
