The National Assembly has pledged to intervene over the continued detention of the leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, by the Department of State Security (DSS) on Thursday.

Zakzaky is being held by the DSS since December 2015, while facing charges for culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace.

The Shi’ite members carried various banners and posters with the pictures of El-Zakzaky protested for the release of their leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, who has been in detention since December 2015.

The House Leader, Ado Doguwa, whom they met at the gate on Thursday promised members of the group, popularly called the Shi’ites, who stormed the National Assembly, demanding the release of their leader to deliverer their message to the appropriate quarters.

He said, 
“This place called the National Assembly provides a window where you come and ventilate your concern and anger.”

“But I assure you, I give you my commitment and the commitment of this institution, that we will address this issue that you raised.”

“And in promising you, I will collect the contacts of your leaders. And by the time I am able to convince my colleagues and superiors, we will get back to you and discuss further,’’ he said.

The spokesman of the sect, Ibrahim Musa, expressed concern that the health of their leader was deteriorating, hence, the need for his release.
