BREAKING: Court adjourns El-Zakzaky’s trial indefinitely
The Kaduna State High Court has adjourned the trial of the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat, indefinitely. El-Zakzaky’s trial was due to continue on Monday.
However, the court explained that the adjournment followed the appointment of the trial judge, Justice Gideon Kurada, as a member of the Election Petition Tribunal in Yobe State. The IMN leader is currently facing trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of public peace, among other charges. He had been denied bail by the presiding judge, Justice Kurada, during the last sitting on January 22, 2018.
In the application for bail filed by El-Zakzaky’s lawyer, Femi Falana, on his behalf at the last sitting, the legal practitioner prayed the court to give a mandatory order for his client and his wife to be flown abroad.
