… As Kaduna Govt. Files Fresh Charges Against Them
Sheikh Ibrahim El Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, and his wife, Zeenat will be re-arrested soon.
This followed the fresh charges bordering on terrorism and treasonable felony against the state and Federal Government just filed against the duo by the Kaduna State Government.
Daris Bayero, Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, Kaduna State, disclosed this today, barely 48 hours after they were discharged and acquitted by the Kaduna State High Court.
Bayero explained that some of the actions of the IMN leader upon which he is being charged with fresh allegations dated back before 2015.
He added that with the fresh charges, the court will consequently issue an order for the arrest of Elzakzaky and his wife.
El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, had battled eight count charges of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of public peace, among others for four years.
They were freed on July 28, 2021, after the judge held that the prosecution failed to establish a prima facie case against the defendants on allegations of culpable homicide and unlawful assembly.
