    Shi’ite Leader Ibraheem El-Zakzaky Still Alive – DSS Insists

    BEVERLY HILLS, January 12, (THEWILL) – The Department of State Services has on Friday in Abuja declared that the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, is not dead, contrary to rumours.

    An official of the service who preferred to remain anonymous told NAN that El-Zakzaky, leader of the Shi’ite Muslims in Nigeria, was hale and hearty.

    El-Zakzaky was arrested in 2015 after his members had a confrontation with the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai in Zaria, Kaduna State.

    53 of his followers were arrested on Wednesday by the Police in Abuja following a violent protest.

    Since the arrest and detention of the group’s leader, his followers had organised series of protests in some cities in the country calling for his release.
