Shiites’ll continue with protests, says El-Zakzaky’s daughter

Daughter of Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Suhaila Zakzaky insisted that the group continue its protests until the release of its father.

Suhaila said this in a video posted on Facebook.

The president of the IMN media forum announced Wednesday that the protests had been suspended.

However, reacting to the statement, Suhaila said: “Even as I speak right now, earlier today, there was a protest in Abuja and there will be tomorrow, and there will continue to be on every weekday.

“I just wanted to clarify because I saw news agencies stating that spokesperson of this movement released the statement.

“First of all, the Islamic movement has no such thing as a spokesman. And the person who wrote this article (is) the chairman of the media forum; the media forum, just like the numerous forums we have in the Islamic movement, is just a forum that is there for people within that field to have their own space and activities within the Islamic movement.”

“This person has nothing to do with the people organising this protest that have been going on in Abuja and will continue to go on till El-Zakzaky is freed.”

The IMN members have been protesting the continued detention of El-Zakzaky who was arrested after the group clashed with a convoy of the chief of army staff in Kaduna state in 2015.
