Court Adjourns El-Zakzaky’s Arraignment To August 2
A Kaduna High Court on Wednesday adjourned the arraignment of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim Zakzaky and his wife Zinat, until August 2.
The presiding Judge, Justice Gideon Kurada, adjourned the matter to enable the prosecution serve the two other persons standing trial with the Shiites leader.
Addressing newsmen after the court session, the prosecution counsel, Mr Chris Umar, said that the adjournment was to enable them serve the 3rd and 4th respondents in the charges.
Counsel to El- Zakzaky, Mr Maxwell Kyom, said the 3rd and 4th respondents in the charges before the court are yet to be served.
Mr Kyom added that they had filed their bail application to the court and the prosecution team had also filed their responses.
The Kaduna State Government had brought an eight-count charge against the Islamic leader and his wife.
