The trial of the embattled leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat, resumes on Monday at the Kaduna State High court.

The IMN leader is currently facing trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace, among other charges.

He had been denied bail by the presiding judge, Justice Gideon Kurada, during the last sitting on January 22, 2018.

In the application for bail filed by El Zakzaky’s lawyer, Femi Falana, on his behalf at the last sitting, the legal practitioner prayed the court to give a mandatory order for his client and his wife to be flown abroad.


Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, informed the court that this was to enable them receive proper medical attention since the Federal Government has glaringly failed to cure them of the injuries they sustained during the alleged army’s onslaught on their residence in December 2015.

He argued that El Zakzaky had in January 2018 suffered stroke in detention and since the reported attack by the soldiers three years ago, he has not been allowed to optimally access good healthcare.

While adjourning the case, Justice Kurada said the court cannot accede to the request of the defendant to travel abroad for medical treatment.

He, however, ordered that El Zakzaky should be allowed by the government to bring doctors of his choice to examine him in the presence of doctors from the government before the date of the next sitting.

The judge had also ordered that the Shiites leader and his wife be remanded in the custody of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) throughout the period of their trial.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up around the court premises along the Independence Way in Kaduna State capital and other roads leading to the court complex ahead of Monday’s the trial.
