From John Shiklam in Kaduna

Counsel to the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, otherwise known as Shi’ites, disclosed on Wednesday that the leader of the Movement, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, was being detained at the headquarters of the Department of State Security (DSS) in Abuja.

At a news conference in Kaduna, the IMN counsel led by Mr. Festus Okoye said El-Zakzaky had lost his left eye while his left hand is partially paralysed, adding that they could hardly recognised him when they met him in detention.

According to him, the Shiite leader now walks with a limp, saying El-Zakzaky had become a complete shadow of himself after the clash with the Nigerian Army in Zaria in December 12, 2015.

Okoye revealed further that El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, were fatally shot by soldiers who raided their Gyallesu residence in the wake of the bloody clash which left several members of the movement dead.
