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.
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.
