Many Shiite Muslim members marched around Kofar Mata Kano protesting the continued detention of their leader, El-Zakzaky by the Federal Government.
The Federal Government may be fanning th embers of trouble with the continued detention of the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria, popularly known as Shiites, as hundreds of their members marched in protest in Kano on Monday demanding for the immediate release of their leader held in custody.
The marchers comprised men, young children and women holding different placards with various inscriptions calling for the immediate release of Shiek Zakzaky.
The leader of the protesters, Mallam Sani Malfa who addressed the crowds at Kofar Mata after three hours of protesting asked the government to immediately release their leader and others held in custody and away from family members since last week.
"We demand immediate release of Shiek Zakzaky,” he said. “And we want him to be released for him to be treated by doctors of his choice over the injuries he sustained."
He said the Islamic Movement also wanted the immediate and unconditional release of the bodies of those that were killed, as well as those who are in detention.
“Members of the Shiites are also calling the authority to allow us to see Shiek Zakzaky for us to know his condition eye to eye," he declared.
