Kaduna State high court has adjourned the trial of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria-IMN, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat, to March 8 and 9, 2021, for further hearing.

The presiding judge, Justice Gideon Kurada adjourned the case after the prosecution counsel, Chris Umar presented two witnesses before the court.

However, only one of the witnesses testified before the court while the other one is expected to be taken in the next adjourned date.

After the court proceedings, counsel to El-Zakzaky who says the prosecution is expected to close its case in the next sitting also said the management of the Nigerian Correctional service have been served with the court order for the evacuation of Elzakzaky’s wife to a treatment Centre.

Elzakzaky and his wife are standing trial on an eight-count charge bordering on alleged culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of the public peace, among others.
