The National Assembly (NASS) said that it will intervene over the continued detention of the leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

Concise News understands that the leader of the IMN has been in detention by the Department of State Security (DSS) while facing charges for culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace.

The House Leader, Ado Doguwa, made the promise when members of the group, popularly called the Shi’ites, stormed the National Assembly, demanding the release of their leader.

Doguwa, who met them at the gate, assured that their message would be delivered to the appropriate quarters.

”This place called the National Assembly provides a window where you come and ventilate your concern and anger.

“But I assure you, I give you my commitment and the commitment of this institution, that we will address this issue that you raised.

”And in promising you, I will collect the contacts of your leaders. And by the time I am able to convince my colleagues and superiors, we will get back to you and discuss further,’’ he said.

Doguwa commended members of the group for the peaceful manner they had conducted themselves.

The spokesman of the sect, Ibrahim Musa, expressed concern that the health of their leader was deteriorating, hence, the need for his release.

The Shi’ite members carried various banners and posters with the pictures of El-Zakzaky.

The Shiites have regularly held street protests to press for the release of their leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, who has been in detention since December 2015.

Their presence caused the main gate of the NASS to be closed with a detachment of policemen surrounding the gate to prevent entrance into the complex.
