Islamic group dismisses dead report on El-Zakzaky

The Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) has denied rumors that the head of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has passed away.

IHRC advised Nigerians to ignore reports that El-Zakzaky had passed away.

According to some sources, the Shi’ite leader passed away on Monday.

However, the international Islamic human rights organization maintained that El-Zakzaky was alive.

In a tweet, IHRC wrote, The Anniversary of the 2015 #ZariaMassacre is today. We will be posting more during this week.

Please disregard rumours circulating this morning that Sheikh El-Zakzaky has passed away.

Meanwhile, Shiites in Nigeria and sympathizers on Monday marked the 7th anniversary of the Zaria massacre.

Recall that the Nigerian Army had attacked El-Zakzaky’s residence in December 2015.

The Nigerian Army troops killed some Shiites and destroyed El-Zakzay’s place of worship.

The incident followed an alleged Shiites attack on the then Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai in Zaria.

Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat lost their six sons, three of whom were killed during the Zaria Massacre.
