The IMN leader and his wife stood trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, among other criminal charges since December 2015, following a clash between his followers and convoy of the then Chief of Army Staff, Lt-General Tukur Yusuf Buratai in Zaria.

IMN, at a press conference in Abuja addressed by Prof. Abdullahi Danladi from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to mark the 5th Anniversary of the Zaria Massacre by the military, noted that despite the attack, the group had not taken any retaliatory measure against the Nigerian Government.

Chanting slogans, raising flags, posters and banners of Zakzaky as well as images of the December 2015 Zaria massacre, the protest took off from Leventis Roundabout along Ahamdu Bello Way and terminated at Ori Akpata Junction by Kano Road in the metropolis.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, SHAC Executive Director (Public Affairs), Moses Odoma, said under the current trend, perpetrators of evil acts against Nigeria are able to evade existing anti-terror legislation once they invoke their foreign affiliation or claim international status
