Shiites storm Abuja, demand El-Zakzaky’s release


Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) also known as Shiites yesterday stormed Abuja, demanding the release of their leader, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky.

They vowed to continue their protests until the Federal Government accedes to their request.

Spokesman of the movement, Abdullahi Musa, urged the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to immediately free El-Zakzaky, who is being held in custody in breach of court orders granting him bail.

The Shiite leader is facing trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of public peace among other charges at a Kaduna State High Court.
