Kaduna El-zakzaky

Barely two days after the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, was discharged and acquitted by a High Court of charges of culpable homicide, the Kaduna State Government has filed fresh charges against him.

The fresh charges border on terrorism and treasonable felony against the State and Federal Government.

Justice Gideon Kurada on Wednesday discharged El-zakzaky and his wife Zeenat, from the eight charges pressed against them by the State Government for lack of merit.

However, not satisfied with the ruling, the State Government on Thursday filed fresh seven charges against the IMN leader at the Federal High Court.

He further explained some of the actions of the IMN leader upon which he is being charged with fresh allegations, dating back before 2015.
