El-Zakzaky is not dead-DSS, lawyer

The security officers have allowed me to see my doctor, my personal doctor.

"Clinically he (El-Zakzaky) is not dead yet". Before, I'm used to being examined by security doctors, but this time, I did not agree.

El-zakzaky who is in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), disclosed this on Saturday while addressing journalists.

Speaking on the issue, the Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr Lai Muhammad stated earlier that El-Zakzaky was still being held on the grounds of national security.

The leader of Islamic movement of Nigeria (IMN), popularly known has Shiite group Shiek Ibrahim El-Zakzaky on Saturday spoke to newsmen. The rumour was denied by his lawyer, Femi Falana. So, it was my own doctors who came to examine, but I'm getting better.

"We have seen the one minute video, but what they should do is to obey the court order by freeing the Sheik so that he can go and look after his health", he said.


Explaining the reasons for showing him to the public with his wife, the spokesperson of DSS, Mr. Nnanna Nnochiri, said that it was basically to dispel his death rumour.

There had been rumors surrounding his well-being, with speculations that he may have died in detention.

At least 347 members Shiites were killed and secretly buried in mass graves by the army.

Members of his IMN group have staged series of processions across the northern states demanding the release of their leaders.

Even though a Federal High Court in Abuja in December 2016 ordered El-Zakzaky and his wife's release, the court order was not complied with by government.
