Subject: Urgent – Guarantees regarding Sheikh El-Zakaky and Mallimah Zeenah?
Dear [insert the name of Ambassador / High Commissioner],
Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife Mallimah Zeenah are reported to have arrived back in Nigeria on 16 August 2019.
I remain deeply concerned about their safety and security.
I look forward to your government’s guarantees of their safety and security, and commitment to releasing them as per the various court orders, for unfettered medical treatment abroad as well as their actual unconditional release.
I look forward to your immediate response. This whole case has deeply tarnished the image of Nigeria in the world at a time when it was thought that Nigeria was transforming and leaving its past behind it.
