Kaduna State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Aisha Dikko says the fate of Ibrahim El Zakzaky, leader of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria, is in the hands of the court.
The attorney general also said there was no pending court order on the case against the IMN leader instituted by the Kaduna state government.
Dikko in a statement issued in Kaduna stressed that the ongoing legal processes should not be the subject of a media campaign or pressure of any kind, affirming that the state government has no intention of withdrawing the charges against Elzakzaky.
She added that the government would leave it to the court to decide the case.
The attorney general said both El Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat are facing an eight-count charge, including culpable homicide punishable with death, before the High Court of Kaduna State.
She recalled that the court had earlier refused the accused persons’ application for bail following their arraignment in August 2018.
