KADUNA, North-West, Nigeria – The detained leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, has distributed foodstuffs worth millions of Naira to the needy in Kaduna state to mark the beginning of this year’s Ramadan season.
The detained cleric instructed the distribution of the items to assist as many needy Nigerians as possible during this Ramadan.
The food items, which include bags of sugar, rice, maize and millet were distributed on his behalf by his son, Muhammad Ibraheem Zakzaky on Thursday
According to Muhammad, “It has been Sheikh Zakzaky’s practice to share food items to the poor and the needy for over 20 years and that has continued even after the Buhari-led government killed over a thousand of his supporters including his sons and hurled him and the wife into, illegal detention having grievously wounded them and refused to comply with the judgment of the Federal High Court that declared their detention as a breach of their fundamental rights.”
He added that the cleric sends his best wishes to Muslims all over the world and assures them of his prayers throughout the Islamic fasting season.
