The Kaduna State Government on Thursday filed fresh charges against Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), under the Treason and Treasonable Offences Act before a Federal High Court.

This is coming less than 24 hours after a Kaduna State High Court discharged and acquitted El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat.

Recall the Kaduna High Court presided by Justice Gideon Kurada on Wednesday ruled that the charges against El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat were not supposed to be filed, as the Kaduna State Government cannot arraign someone for a crime that was not an offence at the time.

Justice Kurada had found that the charges were filed against El-Zakzaky and his wife in 2018 pursuant to the Penal Law enacted by the state government in 2017 over an alleged offence committed in 2015.
