Protests have intensified demanding the release of Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, who is currently held in illegal detention. Intense and mass demonstrations have continued daily across Nigeria, often met by police and army brutality and extreme violence, including live fire. From the UK to Australia, Malaysia to Canada, Pakistan, Indonesia, Ireland, India and beyond, protests are taking place at every hour of every day across the continents.
Campaigners are urged to join the protests wherever they can, as well as other forms of campaigning. Please see that latest campaign action below. See images from protests around the world below.
