El-Zakzaky's Health Remains Stable, DSS Insists

Osinbajo should release El-Zakzaky he needs medical attention like Buhari- Shi'ites

Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), says he is alive and getting better.

The clarification by the DSS on El-Zakzaky's health condition came on the heels of speculations of his worsening state of health and rumours of death.

He walked towards the journalists in a white flowing gown with a turban.

"You know that we have been protesting and demonstrating for the past five days, so that Sheikh would be allowed to go for medical treatment overseas".

Journalist: Can we have a word with you?

El-Zakzaky had been held by the federal government for more than two years over what the government said was an attempt to breach national security.

Journalist: How are you feeling now?

The cleric and his wife had sustained gunshot wounds during their arrests.

This was corroborated by IMN spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, who, however, insisted that El-Zakzaky needs an urgent medical treatment overseas to save his life.

"He has lost an eye; he is in the process of losing the other one".

Also, 53 of his followers were arrested on Wednesday by the Police in Abuja following a violent protest.

"When all their evil machinations failed woefully, however, the security agents went wild and opened fire on our peaceful protesters demanding the immediate release of Sheikh Zakzaky to enable him attend to his deteriorating health while in the illegal detention of the Nigerian authorities".
