Shiite leader, El-Zakzaky arraigned in Kaduna court amid tight security

The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife, were today, May 15th arraigned before the Kaduna state High Court sitting in Kaduna.

The duo were moved from their DSS detention center in Abuja under the cover of darkness and brought to Kaduna for the case.

The Sheikh had refused being served some weeks earlier, but the authorities forcibly arraigned notwithstanding.

Sheikh Zakzaky and the wife were led into the court hall by heavily armed DSS operatives.

The defense lawyers made an oral application for bail and an unfettered access to their clients.

The court asked that the bail application be brought formally and granted the request of the defense of unhindered access to Sheikh after an adequate notice is provided of at least three days.

The application of the prosecution to allow the Sheikh and his wife to continue being in the custody of the DSS was granted.

The case was adjourned to June 21, 2018 and the Sheikh and his wife were consequently returned to Abuja
