Fri Jan 10th, 2020 - Kaduna

The Attorney-General of Kaduna State and Commissioner for Justice, Aisha Dikko, has said that the fate of Malam Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, leader of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), is in the hands of the court.

The commissioner further stated that the ongoing legal processes should not be the subject of a media campaign or pressure of any kind, affirming that the Kaduna State government has no intention to withdraw the charges and would rather leave it to the court to decide the case.

In a statement yesterday, the attorney-general said that both El- Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, ‘’are facing an eight-count charge, including culpable homicide, punishable with death, before the High Court of Kaduna State.’’
