Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) also known as the Shiite group on Monday staged a protest at the headquarters of the National Human Rights Commission in Abuja.

The protesters at the Commission were received by Mr. Olaniyi Omodara, the Director, Legal Services and Enforcement of the Commission.

He encouraged them to exercise patience and keep a peaceful protest as measures were already being put in place to ensure the release of their leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, who has been in the custody of the federal government since December, 2015.

Speaking to newsmen, Sheik Abdullahi Zango, a lieutenant of the Shiite leader, said that the group will not relent in its protest until its leader is released.

“The Shiite group has conducted itself in the most responsible and courteous manner, and will stop at nothing in ensuring that its leader is released.

“Our members are asking for nothing other than the immediate and unconditional release of our revered leader, His Eminence, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, who has been unjustly and unlawfully detained since over two years now. Our group is not here to cause any trouble.

“All we want is for our leader to be released so that he can be free to face his life,” said Zango.
