BREAKING: Zakzaky, Wife To Be Released

A Kaduna State High Court on Wednesday discharged and acquitted Ibrahim Zakzaky leader of the Shiites group and his wife of the charges brought against them.

Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, detained leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), and his wife Zeenah are set to regain their freedom, HumAngle can report.

This follows a ruling by the Kaduna State High Court on Wednesday that discharged and acquitted them of charges brought against them by the Kaduna State Government. 

El-Zakzaky and his wife had been standing trial in the court for the past four years on an eight-count charge of alleged culpable homicide, disruption of public peace and unlawful assembly, among others.

They were brought to court on Wednesday morning by officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service amidst tight security.
