Shiite Leader not in Army’s Custody - Buratai

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai says the leader of the Shiite group, Sheik Ibrahim Zakzaky who was earlier arrested by the military, is no longer in their custody as he has been handed over to the appropriate authorities for prosecution. Buratai said this when he received ‎a delegation from the Nigerian Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) at the Army Headquarters, Abuja today.


“As a responsible and law abiding organization, we will do all that we can to always safeguard lives and property. As for the whereabouts of the Shi’ite leader, he is not in our custody; he has been handed over to the appropriate authorities for prosecution because we don’t prosecute. What happened was avoidable and unfortunate, we followed the rules of engagement as enshrined in the constitution but what happened still happened,” he said.
