“Animal Buhari Free EL-Zakzaky” – Shiite Muslim Protesters Vandalize Ministry Of Justice In Abuja

Federal Ministry of Justice was shut down as Shiite protest again to demand the release of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, currently in the custody of the Nigeria government.

The protest which happened last week Thursday started from the federal secretariat and ended at the ministry. Some of the protesters were seen vandalizing parts of the Justice ministry building by spray-painting – as seen in the pictures.

According to the group’s spokesperson, Abdullahi Muhammad, the action was taken since “our leader would not be released to us”.
Mr Muhammad said

“today at a Kaduna High court, the ruling on the bail application of our leader was again adjourned to November 7.

“This is inhumane, the government keeps telling us they are protecting Zakzaky and keep coming up with excuses. We his followers are tired, and we want the minister of justice, Abubakar Malami, to do the needful by releasing our leader.”

Mr El-Zakzaky has remained in detention since he was arrested in December 2015, following a clampdown on his members by soldiers.
