[6 January 2020] On 5 December 2019 a Kaduna High Court Judge ordered that Sheikh and Mallima be moved from their place of detention to Kaduna Central Prison. Not only is their continued detention illegal and immoral, both are in very poor health and any such move could worsen their situation even further, possibly with catastrophic consequences.
The FreeZakzaky campaign demands the immediate release of Sheikh and Mallima and all those detained after the Zaria Massacre of 2015.
IHRC requests campaigners to write a message of support to the leader of the Islamic Movement Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem el-Zakzaky and his wife Muallima Zeenah who are currently being held in illegal detention.
Please note campaigners should know that their letters will be read by the controller of the prison before they are given to the Sheikh and his wife.
Please send a letter or card via Royal Mail or any other delivery service to the following address:
To Sheikh Zakzaky/Muallima Zeenah c/o Sanusi Muazu Danmusa
State Controller of Corrections Kaduna Command,
Ilorin road, Independence way,
