Shiite Muslims in Nigeria hold ritual for the death of President Buhari

While some Nigerians are praying for President Buhari's health to be restored, others such as Shiite Muslims, aggrieved that their leader has been detained unjustly, decided to hold a ritual for the ailing president to die.

Sheikh Ibrahim El Zakzaky, the leader of the Shiite Islamic sect, has been detained since Dec 2015 after his wife, at least three of his sons, and some of his followers were allegedly killed by the Nigerian Army between 2014 and 2015.
Photos shared by Khalid Abdul shows a group of Muslim men, gathered round a pit of fire, and another photo shows a ram being slaughtered, the blood dripping into a hole. According to Abdul, the photo was of a ritual being carried out in Borno for the president to die.
