Dear Adv. Faith Pansy Tlakula

Re: Sheikh Zakzaky and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria

I write with regard to the continued persecution of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, in particular the continued illegal detention of the Sheikh, his wife Zeenah and hundreds of other IMN members.

You will recall that even the Nigerian courts held that Sheikh Zakzaky’s detention was illegal at the end of last year and demanded the Sheikh’s release. The fact that he and his wife remain in detention, both in need of medical treatment is a stain on Nigeria. The African Union must take immediate action to ensure that this travesty of justice is rectified.

I look forward to your speedy response outlining the actions your office will be taking.

Yours sincerely,

Your signature (if posting)

Your name

Please in addition to writing your own letter/e-mail, help to share this campaign call and information widely, with your friends and other interested people.
