El-Zakzaky: Again, court denies Shi’ites leader bail

By - - [General ]

A Kaduna State High Court on Wednesday denied the bail application of the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria also known as Shi’ite, Sheikh Ibrahim El Zakzaky and his wife.

El-Zakzaky’s counsel, Femi Falana had filed a bail application, urging the court to release his client on health grounds.

However, the Presiding Judge, Justice Gideon Kurada denied the application.

The judge held that the accused persons have not shown any substantial medical evidence to grant them bail.

Justice Kurada ordered that El-Zakzaky and his wife should remain in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, throughout the period of their trial.

The judge adjourned the matter to January 22, 2019, for accelerated hearing.

El-Zakzaky has been in custody of the Department of State Service, DSS, since 2015 when members of his movement attacked the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gn Tukur Buratai in Zaria area of the state.
