The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has paid a visit to policemen injured in a violent protest at the National Assembly by members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shiites.
Naija News understands that IGP Adamu arrived at the hospital premises at around 12:28 pm.
The Police boss was taken around the ward to speak with each of the policemen on admission by the Commissioner of Police in charge of FCT, CP Bala Ciroma and the Trauma Surgeon, Dr Apollo Kanati.
The policemen who sustained different degrees of injuries are; Sgt. Umar Ndabrana, DSP Samuel David, Corporal Mohammed Seriki and Corporal Joseph Abutu
Recall that Shiites protesters on Tuesday allegedly shot two security operatives dead during a protest at the National Assembly in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
The incident was reported to have led to the closure of all gates to the National Assembly premises.
However, the Nigeria Police has dismissed reports that any of its operatives was shot dead.
