Detained El-Zakzaky ‘feeling better’ 


The leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria otherwise known as Shi”te, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky

Against the backdrop of his speculated death last week, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, yesterday, spoke from detention, saying he was feeling better. 

There had been rumours in the media that the leader might have died, following injuries during a 2015 clash with the Nigerian Army in Kaduna State. 

El-Zakzaky wore a white gown with a turban. The conversation between the leader and journalists went thus:

“Journalist: Good afternoon, sir?
Sheikh: How are you?
Journalist: Can we have a word with you?
Sheikh: If they agree and allow me. 
Journalist: How are you feeling, now?
Sheikh: I am feeling better. The security (officers) have allowed me to see my doctor, my personal doctor. I thank God. I am improving.
Journalist: Do you have anything to add?
Sheikh: I thank you for all your prayers.
