IG, FCT CP Deny Detained Free El-Zakzaky Protesters Food


The 115 arrested by the Nigeria police during the free El-Zakzaky protest on Monday in Abuja have been denied food, medical services and even the chance to perform the five daily prayers incumbent upon Muslims.
After their arrest on Monday afternoon, some of their relatives visited the detainees at the headquarters of SARS, Abuja, carrying food items for them, but were flatly denied access to them.
When they enquired as to the reason why they would not be given food, they were told by the officers that it was an order from the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and the FCT Police Commissioner, Sadiq Bello.
It was gathered that even on Monday in the morning the food items taken to the detainees, among them 15 women and underage children, were not served to them.
A lawyer contacted on the issue, who pleaded anonymity, said there was no law in the country that granted powers to the IG let alone the CP to deny detainees food. “Unless they want them to die of hunger,” he said.
Also, Mallam Ibrahim Musa, President, Media Forum of IMN, has demanded the immediate release of Mallam Ibrahim El-Zakzaky. He said: “We wish to reaffirm our stand and demand that our leader Sheikh Zakzaky must be released from the illegal detention.
