The United States has called on the Federal Government to account for the deaths of 300 Shi’ite members killed last December.

   On December 15, 2015, following clashes between members of the Shia Islamic Movement of Nigeria and security forces in Zaria, Kaduna State, at least 300 Shi’ites were reportedly killed.

   In a statement from the US Embassy Information Office on Friday in Abuja, the country expressed deep concern over the latest clash between the police and the Shi’ite members in Kano, describing the security agency’s response to the procession as “disproportionate.”

Hence, it called for calmness, restraint and communication between the Shi’ite members and government authorities.
