•Sheikh Zakzaky

In what is seen as a deft move to further stretch the detention of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, the Nasir el-Rufai-led Kaduna State Government has finally charged him to court. Charged along with the Sheikh are his wife and two others.

The charge number KDH/KAD/60C/2018 between the State and Sheikh Zakzaky and 3 others was dated the 18th day of April, 2018 by Chris Umar Esq on behalf of the state.

In the eight-count charges filed at the Kaduna High Court, the Sheikh and others were alleged to have abetted the commission of culpable homicide punishable with death by members of the Islamic Movement when they allegedly blocked roads in December 2015.

Other charges were those of abetting unlawful assembly, wrongful restraint, disturbance of public peace, voluntarily causing grievous hurt without provocation and inciting disturbances. Further, they were also accused of promotion of unlawful assembly.

Zakzaky and wife have been held since December 2015 in defiance of court orders.
