₦3.5 Million ($9,645) Is Monthly Cost To Feed Detained Shiite Cleric El Zakzaky – Nigeria Govt.

Unic Press UK: The Nigerian government said ₦3.5 million ($9,645) is the monthly cost to feed the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El Zakzaky, who has been in detention since December 2015.

“It costs the government about ₦3.5 million every month to feed him. . . Honestly these are the facts. . . that is the situation. . . The Islamic Movement in Nigeria are a different kettle of fish,” the Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed said.

The IMN leader Ibrahim Zakzaky has been in custody since December 2015, when the IMN members forcefully barricaded a road in Kaduna at a time a military convoy of the Chief of Army Staff was moving. The blockade caused by the sect led to the brutal killing of about 350 of the sect’s members between December 12 and 14, the Amnesty International said in a report in 2016.

Reactions of Twitter

In a surprise move, the Oak TV has issued an apology to the Minister of Information over the circulation of a valid video.
