Group Rejects Murder Charges Against Nigerian Shiite Leader
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria has described the murder charge as ridiculous, a mockery and in contempt of court. The group also condemned the statement by the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad Bin Salman, to the international media on the success in "suppressing Ibrahim Zakzaky and the Islamic movement." Zakzaky has been charged with murder amid growing protests demanding his release from prolonged detention by the government since December 2015 despite court rulings authorising his release.
