NEWSDAILYNIGERIA – The Resource Forum of the Islamic movement in Nigeria, has called for justice and the release of their Leader, Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife who have been under trial by Kaduna government, as a Court in Kaduna is expected to rule on Wednesday on El- Zakzaky’s No -Case Submission.
The Forum prayed that their leader will in no distant time be vindicated and the No case submission will be sustained.
In a statement signed by the leader of the IMN Forum, Mohammed ibrahim Gamawa and made available to Newsmen on Monday, the group said
” The submission on the flimsy charges filed against Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky and his wife the Islamic Movement in Nigeria is patiently waiting for the establishment of No case by the Kaduna state government come Wednesday the 28th July 2021.
” The protracted court proceeding which began in Kaduna three years ago and after an
order by the Federal High Court in Abuja for the release of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife and instructed the Federal government to pay compensation to the duo, which the government apparently defied.
‘ You may recall the 12 December 2015 Zaria Massacre which was carried out by the Baratai). That was the claim and propaganda used to decieve the majority gullible Nigeria
Nigeria Army under the pretext of blocking road to the then Chief of Army Staff (Tukur Buratai) in public.
” However, immediately after the court verdict passed by Hon. Justice Kolawole in Abuja, the Kaduna State Government through its Afforney and Commissioner for Justice filed
charges against Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife which among others include abetment to culpable homicide among others. This is contradictory and antithetical to their earlier Claims and propaganda that Army Chief’s Road was blocked by the IMN members. Thus while testifying before Justice Gwada of Kaduna State High Court, a police officer and
witness brought by complainant confirmed to court that the said Sergent Dankaduna was apparently killed by a friendly hullet fired by one soldier during their attack at Gyallesu Zaria in December 2015.
” Therefore it will interest you to note that all the charges lebeled against Sheikh Zakzaky were the same charges filed against the over 200 IMN members prosecuted by the Kaduna
State Government before the State’s High Courts which eventually discharged and acquitted all the Defendants.
” Hence our case today is a call and a reminder to the general public and particularly the people of conscience in the world of humanity, equity, and natural Justice that we have persevered and endured enough over the incarceration of our leader. We have tolerated enough, but we are grateful to Almighty Allah for giving us the strength, morale and courage to withstand persecution and all sorts of oppressive and repressive powers exerted upon us by this government, as He spares our lives to witness the end of this ease.
” Nigerian citizens and the people of conscience all over the world are keenly and patiently watching the trend of events as they unfold regarding this case. We are very much confident that the court will be left with no option other than to do justice paving way for
yet another victory for us and humanity in general.” he added
