Multitude of brothers and sisters in the city of Kaduna have today Friday, 11/01/2018, staged fresh peaceful protest in the city heart of the state, calling for the immediate and unconditional release of leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, his wife and several other faithful followers in illegal detention for over 3 years.
The protest kicked off this afternoon around 2:30p.m. in Leventis round about, along Ahmadu Bello way, Kaduna.
The protesters as usual, marched chanting different slogans reiterating their demand for the freedom of their leader who had been in illegal detention for over 3 years despite a federal court ruling since December 2nd, 2016, where the court had finally ruled that, the Sheikh should be released within 45 days after acquitting him of any crime.
The protest peacefully terminated along Kano road, a stone’s throw to 69 garage junction, T/Nupawa, Kaduna.
It can be recalled that, Sheikh Zakzaky and his followers were indiscriminately attacked on 12 to 14th December 2015, where murderous Nigerian Army killed more 1000 unarmed and peaceful members of the Movement, shots the leader and his wife, exterminated the lives of his remaining sons, arrested him in cold blood.
