A Kaduna State High Court has adjourned the trial of the leader of the Islamic movement in Nigeria El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat to January 2021.
The presiding judge, Justice Gideon Kurada, adjourned the trial during Thursday’s sitting at the continuation of the trial which started on Wednesday.
El-Zakzaky’s counsel, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), told newsmen in an interview,
“Prosecution called four witnesses today, a retired director of SSS and three other witnesses who are neighbours of our clients.
So they gave their evidence. Essentially they talked about their relationship with the defendants.
“And the state security service officer claimed they took care of the defendants after they were transferred to them by the military.
“So we cross-examined them and the case has been adjourned to January 25 and January 26, 2021, for further hearing.”
Two military officers had testified at the resumption of trial on Wednesday.
The IMN leader and his wife have been in detention since their arrest in December 2015 following a bloody clash between the Shiites and soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna State.
