Tension is in the country as members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria [IMN] across several cities staged a coordinated massive protest, on Sunday.
They are demanding for the release of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky from SSS custody.
Protests were held in Kano.
Thousands of men and women, the young and old matched through the major streets of the city.
They call on the federal government of Muhammadu Buhari to release Sheikh Zakzaky.
Zakzaky is in detention at the SSS Custody for the past four months now.
It was the same story in Azare, Bauchi state.
There, early in the morning, members of the Islamic movement matched through the town carrying placards mostly emboldened with ‘FREE ZAKZAKY’.
In Jos, Plateau state, the protest ended peacefully as youths marched through the streets.
They reminded the public how brutal the massacre carried out by the military in Zaria, Kaduna state was.
Reports from Bauchi, also said there was a large turnout of people demanding the release of Sheikh Zakzaky from incarceration.
According to them, no charge has been brought against him.
Gombe town was not left out in the protest.
Men, women and children staged a peaceful protest also calling on the government to release Sheikh Zakzaky.
Similar protest was held yesterday in Kaduna, Sokoto, Gusau and Birnin Kebbi.
The protests are coming on the heels of the recent disclosure by lawyers of the Islamic Movement In Nigeria.
They had stated that Sheikh Zakzaky has lost an eye and is in need of medical attention together with his wife, Sister – Zeenat Ibrahim, who are with him in SSS custody.
