Kaduna files fresh charges against El-Zakzaky

By AbdulGafar Alabelewe, Kaduna

Less than 48 hours after he was discharged and acquitted by a High Court of charges of culpable homicide, the Kaduna State Government has filed fresh charges against leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

The fresh charges border on terrorism and treasonable felony against the State and Federal Government.

Justice Gideon Kurada on Wednesday discharged El-zakzaky and his wife Zeenat, from the eight charges pressed against them by the State Government for lack of merit.

However, not satisfied with the ruling, the State Government on Thursday filed fresh seven charges against the IMN leader at the Federal High Court.

Kaduna Director of Public Prosecution, Daris Bayero, said with the fresh charges, the court will consequently issue an order for arrest of Elzakzaky to answer the charges.
