Suhaila Zakzaky, the daughter of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has said that the group will continue its protests.
Okay.ng understands that this is contrary to an earlier statement by Ibrahim Musa, president of the IMN media forum, that protests are suspended nationwide.
In the statement on Wednesday, Musa said that the decision to suspend its protest was as a result of “some new openings into the resolution of the problems” involving the proscription of its activities.
Responding to this, Suhaila in a 2 minutes video introducing herself said “the protests are continuing.”
She continued: “Even as I speak right now, earlier today, there was a protest in Abuja and there will be tomorrow
“And there will continue to be on every weekday. I just wanted to clarify because I saw news agencies stating that the spokesperson of this movement released the statement.
“First of all, the Islamic movement has no such thing as a spokesman. And the person who wrote this article (is) the chairman of the media forum; the media forum, just like the numerous forums we have in the Islamic movement, is just a forum that is there for people within that field to have their own space and activities within the Islamic movement.
“This person (Musa) has nothing to do with the people organising this protest that have been going on in Abuja and will continue to go on till El-Zakzaky is freed.”
