Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has said it is not in conflict with President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government or any other constituted authority in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by the chairman of Free El-Zakzaky Campaign Committee of IMN, Sheikh Abdulrahman Abubakar, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng notes that Abubakar said: “We are not at odds with the government. The reality is that we are expressing our concerns and dismay as regards the continuous incarceration of our leader, who was attacked by the Nigerian army.
"We believe the attack was at the instance of the Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian army who is the President, Mr Buhari.
“Despite the Court order that the Sheikh is being detained illegally and should be released unconditionally, the government has refused to obey even as his condition of health is deteriorating. That’s why we have to keep expressing our views as regards what the government has done through regular protests which are a legitimate means.
“We have taken the government to the court yet the government still refused to obey a valid Court injunction that it is unconstitutional to detain somebody under ‘protective’ custody.
"Through our regular street protests, we only want Nigerians to be the judges in El-Zakzaky’s case. We have to stand for justice.”
