El-Zakzaky, Wife Trials Resume Today

After being in detention since 2015, the trial of the embattled leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat, will resume today at the Kaduna State High Court.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Gideon Kurada, on January 26, at the last sitting adjourned the case to March 8 and 9 after the prosecution counsel, Chris Umar presented two more witnesses before the court.

But only one of the witnesses testified before the court at the last sitting, and the other one is expected to testify today at the sitting.

The Islamic scholar and his wife are facing trial on an eight-count charge bordering on alleged culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace to mention a few.

The couple has been in detention since their arrest in 2015, following a bloody clash between his congregation, Shiites and soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna State.
