Switzerland, July 5

After three years of continued detention of the leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, by the Department of State Security (DSS), the National Assembly has pledged to wade in.

The House Leader, Ado Doguwa, made the promise when members of the Shi’tes group demanded their leader’s release during a visit to the National Assembly on Thursday.

Doguwa, who met them at the gate, assured that their message would be delivered to the appropriate quarters.

Zakzaky was arrested in 2016 after the Nigerian Army raided his residence in Zaria, inflicted serious injury on him, and killed hundreds of his followers in December 2015.

He is currently being held by the DSS, while facing charges for culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace.
