Kaduna State High Court has acquitted and discharged the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem El- Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat Ibrahim who have been on trial for four years.
In a judgement delivered today, Wednesday, 28 July, Justice Kurada said the case was not shown nor proven by the prosecutor. El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, are standing trial on eight counts bordering on alleged culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, disruption of public peace, among others.
However, the defendants had pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against them. The couple have been in detention since 2015, after IMN supporters clashed with soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna.
