Worried about the health and detention of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh El-Zakzaky, his supporters in the Southwest on Monday urged the Federal and Kaduna State Governments to release him and his wife unconditionally.

The Southwest Coordinator, Supporters of the IMN leader, Miftahu Zakariya who spoke to reporters in Abuja on El-Zakzaky’s imprisonment said with about 30 million Shi’ites in the country, the group has the capacity to take up arms against government, but will follow due process of the law.
