The Islamic Movement in Nigeria has rejected the stringent conditions attached to the bail of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, by the Kaduna State Government.

After a brief protest by the members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria in Abuja on Thursday, Abdullahi Musa, the organization's spokesperson said in a statement that the conditions attached to the bail application of their leader, El-Zakzaky, was a ploy by the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai, to silence him in detention.

In his statement, Abdullahi Musa said, "Sequel to the press statement released by Kaduna State Government dated August 7 and signed by Samuel Aruwan stating terms and conditions for the medical leave of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife, we wish to inform the public that the conditions are not more than a desperate move by el-Rufai to assassinate the Sheikh in detention, and we hereby turn down the conditions."

The Kaduna State Government proposed that an agreement should be reached between the federal government and the Indian government that asylum would not be granted to the IMN leader and wife under any conditions.
