EL-ZAZAKKY PROTEST TURNS VIOLENT!

*DCP USMAN A.K UMAR KILLED
*3 OTHERS INJURED
*54 SUSPECTS ARRESTED
*IGP DECRIES INCIDENT, SAYS "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"

Another violent protest by members of the El-Zazakky group involving over three thousand of its followers took place today Monday 22nd July, 2019 at about 12:30pm within the Central Business District of Abuja. The heavily armed protesters defied all sense of decency, violently attacking innocent citizens and Police personnel on duty.
 In the process, the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, FCT Command, DCP Usman A.K Umar, was shot and fatally injured by the protesters. The officer who was immediately rushed to the hospital died moments later while receiving treatment. Also, two Assistant Superintendents of Police(ASP) and a Staff of Channels Television sustained serious injuries and are currently receiving treatments in the hospital.
The violent protesters also razed down a National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Response Post close to the Federal Secretariat, Abuja and two vehicles.
Meanwhile, the Police have arrested fifty-four suspects in connection with the incident. The suspects are undergoing interrogation and will be arraigned in court as soon as possible. 
The IGP, while commiserating with the family of the late DCP, condemned the incident and warned that Enough-is-Enough, as the Force and the nation at large will not continue to suffer losses on account of reckless and lawless persons or groups in the society.
