Nigeria Crackdown: Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky Appears Before Kaduna Court
Local Editor

Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria [IMN] Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky was transferred to the central state of Kaduna, where he was arraigned before the state High Court along with his wife.

In further details, a member of the IMN said the Nigerian military forces, in cooperation with the country's government, relocated the cleric to Kaduna on Tuesday morning.

Zakzaky and his wife were brought before the court hall by security forces and they took their seats as the case continued.

An oral application was moved for bail. But the presiding judge asked him to put his application officially in writing.

Meanwhile, the case was adjourned to June 21, 2018 and the Sheikh and his wife were consequently returned to Abuja.

In a phone conversation with his son, Mohammad, a few days earlier, Sheikh Zakzaky said that a representative from Kaduna state court recently served him a summons accusing the cleric of "involvement in murder."

Sheikh Zakzaky told his son that he rejected the allegations, noting that the government seeks to kill him under pressures from Saudi Arabia.

Nigeria's spiritual figure has been detained without trial for over two years over accusations of inciting public disturbances. His movement has vehemently denied the charges.

Despite the ruling of a Federal High Court, which ordered Zakzaky's unconditional release in 2016, the Nigerian government has refused to set him free.

Sheikh Zakzaky lost his left eyesight in a raid which was carried out by the Nigerian army on his residence in the northern town of Zaria in December 2015.

During the raid, the Sheikh's wife sustained serious wounds too and more than 300 of his followers and three of his sons were killed. Zakzaky, his wife, and a large number of the cleric's followers have since been in custody.

A judicial inquiry after the 2015 brutal raid concluded that the military massacred 347 IMN members in Zaria. Soldiers buried the bodies in mass graves.
