Kaduna — The detained leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem El Zakzaky has been transferred to Kaduna correctional centre from the custody of the Department of state services where he had been held for several months.

His transfer followed an order by the Kaduna State high court Judge, Gideon Kudafa ordering that he and his wife be transferred to Kaduna prison.

El Zakzaky and his wife appeared before the judge Thursday almost five months after he came back from India where he had sought medical attention.
