Islamic Tijjaniyya movement stormed the streets of Abuja and Kaduna to celebrate Maulud Nabiyy, the birth of Prophet Muhammed, on Saturday.

Rabiu Kwankwaso, a serving senator and former governor of Kano state, was among the notable Nigerians who identified with the movement.

On Facebook, Frederick Nwabufo, a journalist, wrote: “Abuja has been shut down by some religious folks. The city centre is completely inaccessible. And this is the Federal Capital Territory! Is Nigeria a zoo?”
