Federal government in talks with shi'ites

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN popularly known as shi'ites and the DSS are said to be in talks to find solution to the incessant protest by the religious group.

The spokes person of IMN, Ibrahim Musa told BBC that there was discussion between their representative and the DSS on the way out but they have not reach a conclusion.
