Zaria Massacre 2015: Kaduna High Court Fixes Dec 19 For Ruling

The Kaduna State High Court has fixed December 19 for ruling on the “no case submission” entered in the case instituted by Kaduna state government against members of the Islamic Movement, who were survivors of the heinous massacre of December 2015 in Zaria, but were arrested and have been standing trial since then.They are standing trial for alleged offences including that of culpable homicide punishable by death.The case is the other half of the same case and charges for which close to a hundred members of the Islamic Movement were earlier discharged and acquitted by the same Kaduna High Court.Those arrested were divided then divided into two groups and charged in two different courts of the same High Court simply because none of the halls in the High court in Kaduna was spacious to contain them all. While the first group had completed their case since last year and were discharged and acquitted, this second batch had dragged on till now.
