The Sisters Forum of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria have staged a peaceful protest to demand for the immediate release of their leader, Sheik Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife.

The women marched to the Secretariat of the Kaduna State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists on Tuesday in northwest Nigeria.

According to the spokesperson of the Forum, Aisha Hassan, the group also wants the immediate release of the corpses of members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, who were killed during a clash with soldiers.

The Forum said that at least 1,000 members of the sect were brutally killed in a coordinated attack by men of the Nigerian Army during a procession they claimed was peaceful. They maintained that the attack was a gross violation of their fundamental rights of free association and movement.

There had been rumours that El-Zakzaky was arrested by soldiers at his residence and his wife killed, but the Nigerian Army had debunked the claims.
