Shiite MuslimsA Shiite group known as Save Zakzaky’s Life Group in Nigeria, has declared readiness of its members to storm Abuja in millions for a “sit-around” protest.

The group said the protest became imperative following the expiration of a two-week ultimatum it gave to the Federal Government to release leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheik Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who has been in detention since last December.

A statement signed by the group’s National Coordinator, Bashir Mafara, said members would find a suitable time to storm Abuja in millions for the protest, adding that they would not end the occupation of the nation’s capital till the Shiite leader, Sheik El-Zakzaky, is released.

“Two weeks back, we had given an ultimatum to the Nigerian government, under the leadership of Muhammad Buhari, to release our leader Sheik Ibraheem Zakzaky, who has been in detention since nine months back, and his wife Zeenatu, his children and the over 200 of his followers that are still in detention in Kaduna prison”, the statement said.

The group added that while it is inclined to believe that President Muhammadu Buhari’s advisers might not be inclined to respect justice and have the Shiite leader released, it was hopeful that Buhari in person would release Zakzaky “since he is not guilty”.

The group said it was disappointed that as the ultimatum expired yesterday, there was no sign of Zakzaky’s release.
