El-Zakzaky, wife recuperating in Abuja

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a Shi’ia group, on Thursday said its leader, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenah, were recuperating from gunshot wounds at an undisclosed location in Abuja.

A statement from the group’s spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, said the contact committee of the National Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, visited Mr. El-Zakzaky on Wednesday.

According to a member of the committee, Prof. Dahiru Yahya, the Islamic movement welcomes this development because knowing the whereabouts of the Sheikh and the condition of his health is a step forward in quelling the anxiety of the teeming millions of Muslims and Non-Muslims alike, all over the globe.

The group, however, said it was steadfast in its demand for justice and the release of its leader. They are insisting that the Sheikh be set free unconditionally because the government is yet to justify the atrocities committed by the army that led to his arrest. The group noted that they have been able to establish some figures that indicate how gruesome the avoidable attack by the Nigerian Army has been.
