El-Zakzaky’s Bail, Victory Against Tyranny, Impunity – IMN

Date:


The Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, has described as a victory against tyranny and impunity, the recent release of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, by the court to seek medical attention in India.

Recall that on Monday  a Kaduna High Court had granted bail Mr El-Zakzaky to travel to India to seek medical attention.

Reacting in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, the chairman of the ‘Free Zakzaky Campaign Committee’, Abdurrahman Abubakar, said that the ruling was a vindication of truth and justice against tyranny and impunity.

According to Mr Abubakar, the movement will continue to seek redress through peaceful means without any resort to violence.

He said: “This ruling is not only a vindication that leaving all doors open to obtain favourable outcomes works, but it is a victory for our dogged determination, patience and perseverance in the face of extreme persecution. It is a victory for truth and justice against tyranny and impunity.

’As a peaceful Movement, we have kept to our clean tradition of keeping faith with due process in seeking redress through peaceful means without any resort to violence despite deliberate and persistent provocations by the government.’’

“We are all aware of the blurred human rights records of the Nigerian government which hardly respects court orders in contravention of the constitutional provisions.

‘’Previously, Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife were still kept in detention incommunicado in spite of previous court judgement ordering their immediate release from detention, thereby further flaunting their fundamental rights and further jeopardizing their deteriorating health.

‘’With this recent ruling by the court today, we will finalize urgent plans to transfer them to a more appropriate foreign health facility for further expert management as we await the response of the Nigerian government.

‘’We expect them to act urgently to respect the Nigerian constitution and the ruling of this honourable court to grant the duo instant permit to travel for their treatment,” Mr Abubakar further stated.
