Court to rule on El-Zakzaky’s bail application


A High Court in Kaduna, on Thursday fixed November 7 for ruling on the bail application filed by the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim Zakzaky and his wife, Zinat.
The prosecution counsel, Dari Bayero, complained of lack of adequate security in Kaduna town.
“Security agencies had drafted personnel to strategic areas of the state to provide security for the visit of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osibanjo, to Kaduna State”, he explained.
Justice Gideon Kurada, therefore, adjourned the case to November 7, to rule on the bail application.
The Defence and prosecution counsel later told newsmen that the heads of security agencies in the state had complained of their inability to draft adequate personnel to provide security at the court.
Meanwhile, Bayero told reporters that the 3rd and 4th defendants, Yakubu Yahaya and Sanusi Abdulqadir, standing trial with the Shiites leader, were yet to be arrested.
It was gathered that the Kaduna State Government had brought an eight-count charge against the IMN leader, his wife and the two other IMN leaders based in Katsina and Kano.
The IMN leader, his wife, Yahaya and Abdulqadir were charged with alleged conspiracy and abating culpable homicide, among other related offences.
