Watch Video: Shiites’ll Continue Protests – El-Zakzaky’s Daughter
Suhaila Ibraheem Zakzaky, the daughter of the imprisoned leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has disowned the statement issued by the group’s spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, that they would suspend protests.
She has insisted the group will continue its protests till her father is released.
She said Musa could not speak on behalf of the group, which is also known as Shi’ites.
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.”
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.
