Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, stormed the streets of Abuja to protest against the continued incarceration of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat. 

The protesters included some Muslim worshippers who had just left various mosques after the Jumaat Service at Wuse Zone 3 by the National Headquarters of the Nigerian Customs Service (NIS) on Friday.

A Kaduna High Court has fixed July 29, 2021, for the ruling in the no-case submission of his lawyer, Nigerian Tribune reports.

El-Zakzaky is being held in police custody following accusations that he led a violent group on several occasions to clash with law enforcement agencies, including the army, in the last few years.

The IMN has denied the allegations, describing Shi’ites as peaceful people.
