Court orders release of El-Zakzaky’s wife for COVID treatment

Published

on

A Kaduna State High Court on Monday ordered the Kaduna correctional service to release Zeenat, wife of leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El–Zakzaky, for COVID-19 treatment.

The court asked that Zeenat be moved to a government isolation facility to begin treatment immediately.

Mohammed, son of the IMN leader, last Thursday said his mother tested positive for COVID-19 at the prison but that the authorities refused to release her for treatment.

El-Zakzaky and his wife have been in detention since 2015 after his followers clashed with soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna.

The IMN leader is standing trial for alleged culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace.

Counsel to El-Zakzaky, Femi Falana, had presented a medical report to back up his case for the release of Zeenat.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) asked the court to allow Zeenat to seek medical treatment outside the correctional centre according to measures put in place by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

The presiding judge, Gideon Kurada, granted the request after the prosecuting counsel, Chris Umar, agreed with Falana’s submission.

Published

on

Three persons were feared killed on Sunday in an attack on Okporo community in the Orlu Local Government Area of Imo State.
Many houses were also burnt during the attack which involved shooting, causing stampede and destruction of other property.
Okporo-Nnepi Orlu has been embroiled in crisis since last week when some bandits engaged police men in gun battle that claimed lives of about six bandits and a Divisional Police Officer, CSP Fatmann Dooiyor.
The incident led to the closure of the timber and building materials market by the traders in solidarity with the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kànu, whose trial was to commence on Monday, July 26 but was later adjourned.
The residents said no group had claimed responsibility for the Sunday attack that caused monumental damage to several properties, including motor bikes and vehicles.
Soldiers were drafted to take over the market believed to have been used as a shield by the bandits during the attack.
