Court Orders Immediate Release Of El-Zakzaky, Fines SSS by deantimes(m): 1:34pm On Dec 02, 2016
A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday ordered the release of the leader of the Shi’a Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.



El-Zakzaky was arrested by the military on December 14, 2015, after a clash between the movement and officers of the Nigerian army.

The army killed at least 347 members of the group.

Mr. El-Zakzaky approached the court to demand his release, months after he was arrested without being charged to Court.

He asked the Court to declare that his arrest and continued detention violated his fundamental rights.

His lawyer, Femi Falana, said the court should declare that the continued detention of his client without charging him, was unlawful.

Delivering the judgement, Justice Gabriel Kolawole, rejected the submission of the counsel to the State Security Service, Tijjani Gazali, that Mr. El-Zakzaky was kept in protective custody of the SSS.

He said the decision to hold the Islamic cleric and his wife for their safety was not based on law.


“I have not been shown any incident report or any complaint lodged by residents around the neighbourhood that the applicant has become a nuisance to his neigbourhood,” said the judge.

He said the decision of the government to hold the applicant for so long amounted to great danger.

Citing the death of former leader of the Boko Haram leader, Mohammed Yusuf, the judge said; “If the applicant dies in custody which I do not pray for, it could result in many needless deaths”.

Mr. Kolawole said the government should within 45 days release the applicant and his family to the police, who shall within 24 hours take them, guarded by escort, to a safe place.

He added that the SSS will pay a fine of N25 million each to Mr. El-Zakzaky and his wife, making N50 million.

Guess the AGF will now come out again to remind Buhari that he is above the law hence El-Zakzaky should remain in detention?

This a welcome development. The truth will always set one free. An innocent and a peaceful leader cannot continue to languish in detention.

God bless our judiciary.

Unfortunately, buhari doesn't obey any courts. He is a bloody dictator. The judge that gave this judgement will soon be raided for corruption by DSS for challenging buhari's authority. Democracy died with GEJ's regime sad

The Africa Hitler Muhammadu Buhari (AHMB) will soon look for a reason to go after this fearless judge same way he went after justice Ademola for granting unconditional release order to Nnamdi Kanu.

AHMB truly does not deserve to near governance in this 21 century. He is too analogue for the 21 century governance.

Those who repackaged him as a repentent democrat did the greatest damage to 21 century governance.

AHMB, the Hitler protege has taken governance back by over a century by his actions and inactions especially as it deals with ''keeping tab'' on observing the rule of law.
