Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has petitioned the DSS demanding the unconditional release of the detained leader of the Shiites sect, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat.

Mr El-Zakzaky and his wife have been in detention since December 2015, after a violent clash between members of his sect and the Nigerian Army.

In a letter to the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Mr Falana demanded their release from illegal detention within 24 hours.

“Even though our clients have not been told that they breached any law, they have been denied access to their lawyers, personal physicians, and family members for over three months.

“Our clients were only permitted to meet with us last Friday after several requests made by us had been turned down without any legal basis,” the lawyer said.

On December 12, 2015, armed soldiers clashed with members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, popularly known as Shiites, leaving several people dead in Zaria, Kaduna State.
