Nigerian court orders the release of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky

Yesterday, Wednesday, a Nigerian court issued a ruling for the release of Shia cleric Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky and his wife, after 6 years in prison.
Nigerian sources said that the trial ended yesterday, in favor of Sheikh Zakzaky, and the judge issued a ruling to release him and his wife, Zainat Ibrahim.
The Nigerian army had launched an attack on a gathering of supporters of Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky in the city of Zaria in 2015, which resulted in the death of nearly 1,000 martyrs, including a number of the Sheikh’s family, who were subsequently detained.
Although the Supreme Court issued a ruling for his release, the Nigerian authorities did not comply with the previous court order and continued to illegally detain him.
