The Nigeria Police Force was caught in a semantic trap on Tuesday as it clarified its order banning processions by members of the banned Islamic Movement of Nigeria.

The clarification came too late as Kaduna policemen fired at the Shiites in a procession in the city. Unconfirmed reports said three members were feared killed.

The Inspector general Mohammed Adamu declared on Monday that the procession would be seen as a ‘gathering in the advancement of terrorism’ and asked police commissioners to avert it.

But the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria replied that the procession, Ashura, is part of the religious rituals of the members and vowed to march ‘in peace’. Members kept faith with their vow and streamed out in Abuja and Kaduna in observance of the rite.
