Sheikh Zakzaky, wife to know fate tomorrow

A Kaduna State High Court presided by Justice Gideon Kurada will tomorrow determine the fate of Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife Zeenah Ibrahim on the No-Case submission prayer before the court.

El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenatu, Daily Telescope learnt, have been standing trial in the court for the past four years.

A statement issued by the President Media Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Ibraheem Musa, revealed that the court is expected to deliver its verdict tomorrow on the No-Case Submission prayer.

Musa said the No-Case-Submission prayer was presented by the lead Counsel to Sheikh Zakzaky, Mr Femi Falana SAN, in which he argued that even though the prosecution called 15 witnesses, none of them was able to establish any connection between the alleged crimes and Sheikh Zakzaky.

In the last sitting of the court held on 01/07/21, the lead Counsel prayed the court to rule in favor of his clients and if that happens, then the Sheikh and his wife will be set free since their arrest and detention in December, 2015.

If it can be recalled, two other courts had earlier upheld the no case submission in respect of almost 200 members of the Islamic Movement who were accused with similar charges Sheikh Zakzaky is standing trial for, and were discharged and acquitted.

Also, in 2016 a Federal High Court in Abuja restored the fundamental human rights of the embattled Sheikh and his wife and set them free, however the federal government refused to obey the court order.
