Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shiites, marched on the streets of Abuja on Tuesday to commemorate the birthday of Ibrahim el-Zakzaky, their leader.

Concise News reports that El-Zakzaky has been in the custody of the Department of State Security (DSS) since 2015. The spiritual leader is presently facing trial over “culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace”.

His supporters continually call on the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to set him free. They threaten to adopt a new method of protest if the government continues to keep its leader in detention. Meanwhile, the Federal Government have continued to pay a deaf ear to their cries.
