Femi Falana, lawyer to leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky said the man has not been released yet.
He was reacting to reports that the religious leader, who has been held by the DSS since December 2015, has been allowed to go, based on the Kaduna court decision today, allowing him and his wife, Zeenat to embark on a medical trip to India.
“He has not been released yet”, Falana, a senior advocate of Nigeria, said in an SMS to our reporter.
Asked when the DSS would allow the religious leader to travel, the senior lawyer, said: “As soon as possible”.
His view corroborated the denial by one of the officials of the proscribed IMN that El-Zakzaky has been released.
