Mohammed Ibraheem Zakzaky, son of Ibraheem Zakzaky, the leader of Shiite Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), has dispelled rumours of the death of his father in prison.
“This morning, I began to receive calls from concerned people, about a rumour currently circulating that my father is either critically ill or worse. Because of this I contacted the prison authorities and they allowed us to go and see them. In fact I just left less than an hour ago.
“While my father does indeed suffer from a number of potentially life threatening health challenges due to his injuries and his imprisonment, none of that is new. The rumors are simply just rumours.
