The Kaduna State Government has frown at the decision of the Federal High Court in the state to free 91 Shiite members accused of killing a soldier following clashes with troops more than four years ago.
Counsel to the State Government vowed to appeal the judgment.
Meanwhile, the Shiites’ Lawyer, Haruna Magashi, said that the court “discharged and acquitted” the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria for lack of evidence linking them to the death of the soldier during the bloody encounter in December 2015.
He added that he would continue to push for the release of the Shiite leader.
“We will now focus our attention on the trial of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky,” Magashi said.
