And following the protests, there are reports that Buhari may proscribe the group whose leader Ibrahim Elzakzaky has been in detention since 2015.

While reacting to the planned ban, Omokri in a tweet on his handle, said: “I hear General
wants to BAN Shiites. How many people have Shiites killed?

“If General Buhari is looking for something to BAN, he should start with HERDSMEN. They have killed more Nigerians, and policemen than Shiites, IPOB and OPC combined.”
