The Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, also known as Shiites, has claimed that its leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, was about to become blind and could also lose his life if he is not allowed to receive medical treatment.

IMN raised the alarm after the Kaduna State Superior Court on Thursday ordered the Islamic cleric to remain in custody.

In a signed statement made available to GISTOK on Thursday, by the President, the Free Zakzaky Campaign Committee, Abdurrahman Abubakar Yola, the Shiites chided the court for “allegedly not defending the truth and justice against tyranny and impunity ”

The statement added: “Today, Thursday 18/07/19, the High Court of the state of Kaduna met to hear an extraordinary bail application for medical reasons, instituted by the lawyers of our leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife Malama. Zeenat Ibraheem

“Unfortunately, the court once again shirked its duty to side with the victims of extreme persecution by the government.” When it mattered most, the court crouched and did not defend the truth and justice against tyranny and impunity.

“It will be remembered that it is known that the applicants are clearly very ill in detention, as a result of the brutal injuries unjustifiably inflicted on them by state agents on behalf of the Nigerian army, the resulting prolonged dehumanizing detention in the custody of the State Department. of the State (DSS) and the obvious poisoning of the sheikh.

“As a result of all these physical and psychological stresses, the Sheikh suffered a series of minor strokes and runs the risk of recurrence. Meanwhile, he lost an eye after the military attack and runs a serious risk of losing his sight completely on the other.

“Now you find that you have more than twenty times the toxic levels of lead poison in your body! Similarly, the wife has been suffering excruciating pains with shrapnel deeply lodged in her body through all these years of inhuman conditions of detention.

“Now you can only wander with the use of a wheelchair. Even today, both could not walk to the courtroom and had to wait outside while the case developed.

Despite all this, the court has once again allowed the government to kill these innocent people in installments through unnecessary delays.

“We continue to congratulate the Almighty for obtaining more evidence that the Nigerian government can not and is not willing to do justice, even through the courts.

“This shows the world that the Movement and its leader have been and continue to be only victims of the impunity and malicious plots of the government led by Buhari.

“We wish to take this opportunity to thank all the people of conscience, activists and human rights organizations, journalists and all those who continue to be on our side in the campaign for justice for the victims of the Zaria genocide. “We will continue with our relentless campaigns to see what is necessary.”
