 A fresh riot broke out on Friday in northern Nigeria's Kaduna State leaving about three people dead and 60 others injured, the Lagos based Nation newspaper reported.

    The clash broke out when members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria otherwise known as the Shittes Islamic sect engaged in gunbattle with the police, the report said.

    The Shiites movement had earlier in the day embarked on a peaceful demonstration under police escort in Kaduna without a break down of law and order.

    Local media report had it that the police, acting on intelligent reports, mobilized their men to prevent the impending attack on them by the Shiite sect and to secure the lives and property of the people of the area.

    The dead and injured persons were allegedly caught in a cross-fire during the exchange of gunshots between the police and some members of the sect, the report said.

    In July, a militant Islamic group, Boko Haram, had unleashed mayhem on parts of the northeastern zone of the country, starting with Bauchi, the Bauchi State capital.

    The crisis soon spread to other parts of the country like Yobe,Kano and Maiduguri. About 1,000 lives were lost.

So it is now the turn of the Shiites, the ones that are slaughtered like goats by the Sunnis in Iraq. This country can easily descend into a civil war if care is not taken. If that happens this time around you can be sure that there will never be one Nigeria ever again. And we might be better off for it.
