Following the persistent series of protest and rallies embarked upon by the Shiites group to call for the release of its leader, Ibrahim Elzakzaky, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) command of Nigeria police force has banned protests and rallies at the Unity Fountain in Abuja.

Sadiq Bello, commissioner of police in the FCT, disclosed this on Friday after Deji Adeyanju, an activist, was  arrested for allegedly inciting civil unrest.

He was released at 3: 20pm following the intervention of Charles Oputa, better known as Charly Boy, who is the leader of OurMumuDonDo Movement.

Civil rights groups like the Bring Back Our Girls movement and Our Mumu Don Do, usually stage protests at the Unity Fountain.
