Nigerians Up In Arms at Shiite Leader's Hefty Food Bill

Some Nigerians are shocked when Information Minister Lai Mohammed said that it costs U.S.$9.600 monthly, to feed detained Shiite leader Ibrahim El Zakzaky. The Shiite leader has been in detention since December 2015 after a clampdown on his Shiite movement, in which 347 supporters were killed by soldiers.
