The trial of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El – Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat began on Wednesday in the Kaduna State High Court.

The Kaduna state government indicted El-Zakzaky and Zeenat on eight counts bordering on alleged wrongful death, illegal assembly and disorderly conduct, among other charges.

On September 29, the IMN leader and his wife pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to them.

The State presented two Army officers who testified in secret before Judge Gideon Kurada of the Kaduna High Court.

The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that since the testimony was given in secret, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN, told reporters that the case was postponed until November 19 to continue with the hearing.

“Two witnesses were taken and the trial will continue tomorrow.

“The officers were subjected to cross-examination and gave evidence of the operation that lasted between December 12 and 14, 2015, and the role of the military in the operation,” Falana said.

Dari Bayero, who led the prosecution, did not speak to reporters.

NAN reports that on September 29, the court dismissed a caseless submission filed by El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat.

In the motion, the IMN leader had asked the court to dismiss the charges against him and his wife for lack of evidence.

But in his ruling, the presiding judge, Judge Kurada, dismissed the submission without a case, saying it was premature to rule on the request to vacate the charges against the defendants in view of the clear provisions of the Criminal Justice Administration of the Kaduna state.
