Following the protest march by scores of El-Zakzaky supporters demanding his release at the Three Arms Zone, Abuja, yesterday, police arrested nine persons, suspected to be leaders of the protesters.
FCT police spokesman, ASP Anjuguri Manzah, noted that the nine suspects have been transferred to the Command’s Criminal Investigations Depart-ment for organizing violent and unlawful protests in the city.
Emphasizing that no permit was given for the protest, Manzah said the leaders of the protest march will be charged to court for unlawful assembly.
It comes after that Federal High Court in the capital Abuja issued a decree ordering release of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife Zeenah within 45 days but State Security Services defied the law and failed to release him on time.
