Another bloody clash between the Islamic Movement of Nigeria otherwise known as Shiites and the police occurred on Monday morning.
The clash started around Tamburawa, on the outskirts of Kano city, when the police tried to stop a Shiite protest.
Over a dozen people including a police officer are feared killed from the violent clash.
Several others sustained varying degrees of injuries.
The clash has led to the blockage of the ever busy Kano- Zaria Expressway.
The police have since deployed heavily armed mobile police officers to the area.
