Massive protests staged to demand Zakzaky’s freedom

18 April 2016, 06:44Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) have staged protests around the country demanding the release of leader, Ibraheem Zakzaky, from the custody of the State Security Service.

IMN Spokesperson, Ibrahim Musa, said the weekend protests came on the heels of the recent disclosure by lawyers of the IMN that akzaky had lost an eye and is in need of medical attention together with his wife, Zeenat Ibrahim.

She is also in SSS custody.

Protests were held in Bauchi, Kaduna, Kano, Plateau and Sokoto States.

Musa said thousands, including children, embarked on the protests which he described as peaceful.

Zakzaky was injured and arrested in the 2015 Zaria massacre, which took place on December 12.

The clash led to the death of many unarmed civilians.

The Army claimed that it had responded to the Shia followers' attempt to assassinate the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai.

However, this claim has been strongly rejected by the Islamic Movement and several human rights organizations who argue that the attack was pre-planned.
