Members of the IMN and conscious citizens of Nigeria continued their protest agaisnt detention of the leader of the IMN His Eminence Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) who has spent more than 500 days in detention despite the court order of the release of Shaikh Zakzaky and his wife Malama Zenatuddeen Ibraheem
by a Jugement passed by Justice Kolawole of the federal high court Abuja since December 2016.
Mal Sunusi AbdulKadir Koki was the speaker at the rally on Friday 28th April, 2017 after the Jumma’at prayers at Fagge Jumma’at mosque, Kano. In part of his speech at the occasion Mal Sunusi reiterated the call for the unconditional release of Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) and that the federal government should obey the federal court order for the release of Shaikh Zakzaky and his wife . He also reiterated that all heartfelt Nigerians and the international community have continued to show and express their sympathy of all act of injustice meted on the leader of the IMN Shaikh Zakzaky (H) and his members with the recent participation in the Abuja rally of concerned Nigeria led by Mr Deji Adeyemi. Despite all act of the antagonism and measures by the Nigerian security agents to stop or prevent the protest, the protest was held successfully as participants condemned the continued detention of Shaikh Zakzaky (H) and his members.
In his speech Mal Sunusi commented on the derogatory statement expressed by Mr Nasir ElRufai in a Live Television interview on the leader of the IMN Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky likely the leader with a word he termed an idiom “Animal”. Who is to be likened an animal? A figure that has respect by all peace loving citizenry across the globe irrespective of creed, religion, culture, socio economic class etc or a figure that has been judged to be full of sycophancy, betrayals, participation in killing defenseless citizens, ordering burial of more than 345 humans not certified dead in a single day overnight just to mention a few. The audience voiced out God’s intervention against El rufai and all unjust individuals using their offices in undertaking unjust act.
