Individuals from the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, also called Shiites, today in Kaduna protested the continued detainment of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, his wife and different individuals from the group.
El-Zakzaky, his wife and a few individuals from the movement have been behind bars since December 2015 when they clashed with the Nigerian Army in Zaria, Kaduna State.
The challenging individuals from the gathering promised never to partake in or have any further dealings with the Judicial commission of Inquiry set up by the Kaduna State government, demanding rather that they would to proceed with the protest until El-Zakzaky and others were discharged unconditionally.
However, a serene challenge, traders and market ladies briskly stuffed their product and took cover.
They protested from the ever-bustling Leventis Roundabout up to Kano Road in the heart of the city.
The representative of the Youth Wing of the IMN, which organised the protest, Abdulhamid Bello, said they would keep on being peaceful, serene and submit to the laws of the area in the quest for their demand.
