As the demand for the unconditional release of Sheikh Zakzaky and hundreds others continue, a reliable information reaching us confirmed that a team of the Nigerian Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) which comprises of Scholars and Lecturers have, on Wednesday the 13th January 2016, met with Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky in a hospital in Abuja at about 2 pm local time.
The group, which include the Chairman of Ansarudeen Society of Nigeria, University lecturers and host of other scholars, met the Leader and his wife Malama Zeenah Ibraheem at the hospital and had a chat which lasted for couple of minutes exactly one month since the Army massacre in Zaria of thousands of people and the subsequent arrest of the Sheikh and his wife. The information says the Sheikh and his wife are responding to treatments of the serious injuries they sustained.
Though the family of the Sheikh and Movement’s representatives have no access to the leader, this is information becomes very important at this time being the first information about the Sheikh’s health condition since his arrest and for the massive inquiries reaching the Movement regarding the Sheikh’s health condition who was taken away by soldiers with serious injuries as a result of gunshots.
However, the demands of the Islamic Movements have not yet been met as stated earlier, they are:
1- Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) should be released unconditionally.
2- All corpses of slain brothers and sisters still with the authorities must be handed over to us for proper Islamic burial.
3- All detainees should be released together with the injured.
4- A strong and all-inclusive committee must be set up that include local and international representations to investigate and make public its findings for the world to know the truth.
5- Compensation must be paid for properties destroyed and lives lost and those who committed the genocide must be made to face the wrath of the law.
