Both Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife have been detained by the Nigerian government for over a year and one month.

The Islamic group also appealed to the international community to commit Nigeria to upholding religious rights and freedom, failing which the Nigerian government would be isolated and sanctioned.

The Chairman, Shuhadah (Martyrs) Foundation, (IMN), Sheik Abdulhameed Bello made the call at a news conference in Abuja, where he also said that the movement was in the process of heading back to court to enforce court judgment delivered on December 2, by Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The detention of El-Zakzaky and his wife since 14th of December, 2015 is illegal and unconstitutional and violates their fundamental rights to health and association.

“A few people that do not wish our movement well claimed that we do not recognise the sovereignty of Nigeria and its institutions, yet we took our grievances to a properly constituted court of law.

“The government claimed that members of our movement do not obey rule of law and due process but it is our leader that has been held in solitary confinement for one year and one month without charges against him and without the authorities alleging any offence being filed against him. The houses of our leader have been destroyed. His children have been brutally killed. His wife is in custody and carrying bullet wounds,” he stated.

The group demanded that its leader and his wife be released unconditionally and in accordance with the procedures laid down in the judgement of the Federal High court.

“We urge the international community to persuade the government to obey the order of a Federal High court and release our leader unconditionally. We also appeal to the international community to commit Nigeria to upholding religious freedoms, failing which Nigerian government and its agents be isolated and sanctioned.
