Gov El-Rufai Reveals Why El-Zakzaky Will Remain In Custody, Says He Is Paying For His Sins
Governor of Kaduna State, Mr. Nasir El-Rufai says the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, will continue to remain in DSS custody because of the pains, he and his supporters had caused the good people of Kaduna State for over 30 years.
Speaking at a live radio interview on Friday, the governor said the fate of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (INM) leader does not lie with Kaduna State Government but with the courts.
Governor El-Rufai explained that when the Federal Government said El-Zakzaky’s fate lies with the Kaduna State Government, it meant it was not the one currently in court with the IMN leader.
“The governor further explained that after El-Zakzaky was arrested and detained by the Federal Government in December 2015, the Kaduna State Government recalled the many alleged offences the IMN leader and his supporters had committed against the good people of Kaduna and government for over 30 years.
He said the government then undertook an investigation that looked into their alleged disregards for laws, harassment of other citizens rights from when they (INM) were in Zaria City till they moved to the Gellesu Quarters.
“Upon conclusion of the investigations, the Kaduna State Government with it’s findings requested the Federal Government to release him to it so it could seek legal redress.
As for foreign bodies intervening in the matter, Governor El-Rufai said that they are wasting their time and energy as the pains El-Zakzaky and his supporters have brought to the people of Kaduna are much hence the state government will not release him until his case is determined by the court, “he said.
