A group of Muslim women in Abuja protest the continuous detention of Ibrahim Al-Zakzaky, a Shi’a Muslim cleric and spiritual leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and his wife despite a high court ruling which ordered his release.
Sheikh Al-Zakzaky and his wife were arrested in Dec, 2015 in Zaria, Kaduna during a raid by the Nigerian Army which led to the death of over 300 members of the sect. The Nigerian Army claimed that the raid was a proactive measure to counter the plot to assassinate Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai by the Islamic Movement in Nigeria.
Sheikh Al-Zakzaky and his wife are currently been held in a secret detention centre.
