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.
The IMN, which raised concern over the failing state of health of the duo in Kaduna Prison, said its leader and his wife have been in the “illegal detention” for 2,000 days.
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.
The Secretary, Academic Forum of the IMN, Abdullahi Muhammad Musa, made the remark in a statement in Abuja.
