An eight-month-old girl, Zainab, who was reportedly shot dead on Monday during the clash between the Nigeria Police Force, NPF and members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, in Kano State, has been laid to rest.
Zainab, who was strapped on her mother’s back during the clash, was killed by a stray bullet.
She was said to have died instantly.
Photos of her heartbreaking funeral hit the social media on Wednesday with some calling on the government to fight for her justice.
Recall that about 15 Shiite members and one policeman reportedly lost their lives, while scores were injured during the clash.
The members, under the leadership of incarcerated Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky were trekking for the annual Arbaeen Symbolic Trekking from Kano to Zaria in Kaduna state.
