Kaduna State High Court yesterday adjourned sitting in the murder case involving Shiites Leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Hajiya Zeenat indefinitely. El-Zakzaky and wife are standing trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of public peace, among other charges brought against them by the Kaduna State government.
Speaking to journalists shortly after the adjournment, lead counsel to the defendants, Femi Falana (SAN), lamented that in spite of Kurada’s absence, El-Zakzaky and Zeenat’s health condition has deteriorated, and were in dire need of medical attention.
Falana insisted that his clients could not appear in court due to their failing health, adding that they had not received adequate medical care since their detention in December 2015.“So, the court has adjourned sine die. My clients are yet to access any form of medical attention even after the court had ordered so. The case had to be adjourned, as both my clients need time to attend to their health,” Falana said.
