TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Nigerian protesters gathered in Yola on Friday to keep calling for the release of the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky.
A new video posted on twitter by activists show large group of people staging massive rallies in the streets of Yola to express their support for the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky while chanting (we are all with Zakzaky) and denounce his long-time detention by the government and asking for his release.
Zakzaky has been imprisoned at an unknown location without charge since he was detained by security forces in 2015 after the Nigerian army carried out a raid on his residence in the northern town of Zaria during which he lost his left eyesight, then made his first public appearance in January 2018.
