Kaduna - The authorities of the Kaduna Prisons have debunked the claim that the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, otherwise known as Shi’ite, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, was in the prison, Premium Times reports.

While dismissing the claim, the Controller of Kaduna Prisons, Abubakar Argungu, however, said 191 members of the group were in the custody of the prison.
