A Member of the Legal team for the now freed Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim El – Zakzaky, Barrister Sadau Garba said the charges against his client over misconduct was all a farce.
He was speaking after the ruling that lasted over eight hours, on Wednesday where the judge, Gideon Kurada, upheld the no-case submission filed by El-Zakzaky and his wife.
Garba told journalist that with the verdict the Islamic Cleric and his wife have been vindicated of all the allegations levelled against them.
The Legal Practitioner hinges the hurriedly assembled action on the State Government’s appetite to satin the good legacies and paths of El – Zakzaky.
The couple have been standing trial in the court for the past four years on an eight-count charge of culpable homicide, disruption of public peace and unlawful assembly among others levelled against them by the Kaduna State Government.
The government accused them of being responsible for the death of a soldier when soldiers massacred over 300 protesting Shiites in December 2015.
