*After The Contemptuous Media Parade The Federal Government Must Release The Elzakzakys – Falana (SAN), Lead Counsel To Sheikh Zakzaky* Last week, it was widely rumoured in the social media that Sheik Ibraheem Elzakzaky had died in the illegal custody of the State Security Service . Although I was compelled to dismiss the dangerous rumour via a public statement I requested the federal government to release the Shiite leader and his wife for urgent medical attention.
Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) have continued the peaceful protest to demand for immediate and unconditional release of the leader of the Movement in Abuja today 11/1/2018. Today's peaceful protest end peacefully because the Nigerian police didn't attacked it. But after the closing prayer while some brothers are going back to their various destinations, Nigerian Police have make some unlawful arrest. Since the beginning of this protest more than 100 members of the Islamic Movement have been arrested by the Nigerian Police.
Security agents are spreading false information and rumours with a view to breaking our will and causing confusion so that the could seize the opportunity to turn our peaceful protests into a violent occasion. Credible reports have confirmed that hoodlums have been commissioned by the authorities to foment trouble by burning tyres and properties in the course of our peaceful processions. Part of their evil plot involved spreading false news of the alleged death of our leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky due to illness on fake Facebook profile pages.
RE: Why We Attacked Protesting Shi'ites
The Director General of Nigerian Security Service alias known as DSS, Lawal Musa Daura has ordered the seizure of Sheikh Zakzaky's mobile phone on Wednesday evening. The mobile phone has served as Sheikh Zakzaky's lone means of communication. This is not coming as a surprise to the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and other people of conscience around the world; for this development is unfolding following a fake news carrying the alleged news of Sheikh Zakzaky's death published by a Hausa news medium, RARIYA which was later extended to other blogs.

They also arrested many members of the movement including women and children.
