The members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) as known as Shi'ites have denounced claims by the Department of State Security (DSS) that the leader of the movement, Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, is in protective custody.
The Shi'ites in a statement by the President of the Movements's Media Forum, Ibrahim Musa, accused the DSS of admitting that there are some people in the high corridors of power who want to extra judicially kill Zakzaky.
They, therefore, called on the Federal Government to release Sheikh Zakzaky without any condition adding "It is only this step that will explain away the mystery of protective custody".
He added, "People with conscience all over the world were baffled, when on Tuesday 15th June, 2016 the Directorate of State Services, DSS mentioned before a Federal High Court in Abuja that it is holding the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky "in protective custody" in order to fend him off from those who are hell bent on murdering him.
