Death rumour: El-Zakzaky speaks from detention (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
The leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), popularly known as Shiite Group, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, has made his first public appearance in over two years.
He spoke to the press today to dispel rumour that he is dead.
El-Zakzaky who is in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS), on Saturday in Abuja said: “It was severe on me on Monday but subsequently it started subsiding and for the first time at least the security allowed me to see my own Doctors.
“So it was my own doctors who examined me. Before I used to be examined by security doctors, this time I did not agree, and my own doctors came to examine me.
“I am getting better, thanks to all your prayers,” the IMN leader said.
