Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) have protested the continued detention of their leader, Ibrahim Zakzaky.
It could be recalled that Zakzaky has been in detention since 2015, after Shi’ites and soldiers clashed in Zaria and the court had also ordered the release of Zakzaky.
Abdulhamid Bello, leader of the protesters who walked to the National Human Right Commission (NHRC) said they are running out of patience.
He said Zakzaky and his wife were still held in detention contrary to the court order which granted them bail.
Bello said, “At the end of their two days murderous mission, they left behind corpses of the young, old and able-bodied men and women in their wake, apart from the wanton destruction of properties worth several hundred millions of naira,”.
“The government of Buhari is behaving in contempt of the rule of law, telling all and sundry that it is above the law.”
