Shiites Hold Protest In Kaduna Over Sheikh El-Zakzaky’s Release

Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria have staged a protest to demand the release of their leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his Wife Zeenah from detention.

Holding flag with different inscriptions on Wednesday, the Islamic movement members marched along the popular Ahmadu Bello way down to Leventis roundabout, contrary to the ban on their activities by the Kaduna State Government.

The group is demanding the immediate release of El-Zakzaky, his wife, and other members  who are being detained in various parts of the country.

They argued that a court of competent jurisdiction had already ordered the release of the leader Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, and therefore, wondered why the government cannot abide by the court order.
The protest by the members comes exactly five years after Sheik El-Zakzaky and his wife were arrested after a bloody attacked by the Nigerian Army in Zaria, Kaduna State.
