Shittes reacts to rumoured death of its leader, El-Zakzaky

El- Zakzaky dismisses death rumors

The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied media report that leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), otherwise known as Shiites, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, was dead, saying he was alive and in stable condition.

"I am getting better, thanks to all your prayers", said the Shi'ites leader who wore a neck brace while addressing journalists.

PRNigeria provided a transcript from the one-minute, 20-second interaction between Sheikh ElZakzaky with journalists at a Safe Facility in Abuja. The journalists moved towards him.

"You know that we have been protesting and demonstrating for the past five days, so that Sheikh would be allowed to go for medical treatment overseas".

Six Things to Watch in Titans-Patriots Game Saturday
Despite continued conjecture about the state of the Patriots , there is a unified resolve now that it's nearly game time . The Tennessee Titans did something no one expected them to do last weekend: defeat the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead.

El-Zakzaky had been held by the federal government for more than two years over what the government said was an attempt to breach national security.

The cleric and his wife sustained gunshot wounds during their arrests.

Earlier this week, rumors of El-Zakzaky's death ran rampant in Nigeria. "He has developed stroke in detention", Falana had said.

Since the arrest and detention of the group's leader, his followers have been holding a series of protests in some cities in the country, especially Abija calling for his release. From Monday to Wednesday, IMN members protested in the capital, with police arresting 52 people without specifying charges.
