Court Rules Today On “No Case Submission” On Those Standing Trial Since Zaria Massacre

The Kaduna state High court will today Tuesday 31st July, 2015 rule on the “No Case Submission” entered by the defense lawyers in the case against about 100 members of the Islamic Movement facing charges of culpable homicide since the brutal December 2015 Zaria massacre.

No case submission was entered by the defense after a very long and tortuous trial spanning almost two years, in which the prosecutors, in the eyes of the defense, failed to establish a case against the defendants.

It remains to be seen what the court will decide today whether to free all or some of the accused or call on the defense lawyers to proceed to opening their defense.

We are set to break for you the news of whatever the court will decide today.
