The conditions attached to the bail of Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, has been rejected by the group.
This is coming after a brief protest by members of IMN in Abuja on Thursday.
In a statement by the organisation’s spokesperson, Abdullahi Musa, the conditions attached to the bail application was planned by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, to keep El-Zakzaky in detention.
Musa said, “sequel to the press statement released by Kaduna State Government dated August 7 and signed by Samuel Aruwan stating terms and conditions for the medical leave of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife, we wish to inform the public that the conditions are not more than a desperate move by el-Rufai to assassinate the Sheikh in detention, and we hereby turn down the conditions.”
The Kaduna State Government, had asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to verify if truly El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenah, have medical appointments with the Medanta Hospital, India.
