Free Shaikh Zakzaky Protest by students at NASS Abuja today (10/05/2017)
More than 500 days after the illegal arrest and unconstitutional detention of Shaikh Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat, meanwhile, more than a thousand of his followers were mercilessly massacred and buried in mass graves.
The Nigerian "Democratic" Government headed by President Muhammadu Buhari has unjustifiably continued to by-pass the law and paid no heed to the various calls by different people and organisations that the humble and innocent Shaikh should be freed and compensated. It is not hidden to the world that a Federal High Court in Abuja had on 2/10/2016, ordered the government to release Shaikh Zakzaky,his wife Zeenah and compensate them. The refusal to obey the ruling has indeed transformed the "Democracy" of this great country of ours to a totalitarian state bounded by Fascism elements.
Few weeks back, some responsible members of the House, led by honourable Alhasan Ado Doguwa addressed a peaceful protest organised by Academic Forum of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (AFIMN), assuring them that the National Assembly will take a positive action and facilitate the release of Shaikh Zakzaky and his wife.
This is exactly one month and we are still expecting to see a positive result.
We hereby demand the unconditional release of Shaikh Zakzaky, his wife and all Nigerians detained unjustly. Hence , the perpetrators of the Killing of hundreds of students in Zaria must be brought to book.
