IMN holds thanksgiving reception for acquitted members

Today Sunday 12th November, 2017 members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) hosted a thanksgiving reception in honour of members who were recently discharged and acquitted after nearly two years of wrongful detention in Prison. It will be recalled that a Kaduna High Court last week upheld the no case submission of the defense lawyers having examined the charges and listened to all the prosecution witnesses along with their evidence. Consequently, the presiding judge set the accused free, having found that the charges against them were baseless. Those arrested were arrested on Tuesday 15th December, 2015 for protesting the horrendous genocide in Zaria some days earlier and the arrest of the leader of IMN, Sheikh Zakzaky having been also fatally shot before the arrest. The Sheikh is today also marking his 700th day in illegal detention, having had a Federal High Court judgement setting him free disobeyed by the Federal government.
