Court Order: Shiites Temporarily Suspend Protests

In compliance to the court order, the Islamic Movement in Nigeria has temporary suspended of ‘Free Zakzaky’ protests staged by members of the movement to seek the release of their leader, Shiek Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, and his wife from continued detention.  

This was made known by the President, Media Forum of the IMN, Ibrahim Musa, noting that the suspension of protests is so that the “court case instituted by our lawyers on the proscription order made by the federal government this week can take its full course.”

According to Musa the step that was taken is in good faith and with the hope that a genuine and amicable way could be found to solve the crises surrounding the illegal detention of the Shiite leader for almost four years. He added that “If at all any protest occur anywhere in the country, it might be this notice hasn’t reached those involved or they misunderstood the notice or it is some security agents that are behind it, who we know have been doing all they can to smear our image as victims of savage oppression since 2015.”
