A Kaduna State High Court sitting in Kaduna has fixed September 29, 2020, to rule on the no-case-submission filed by the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

The IMN leader is asking the court to quash the state government’s case against him for lack of evidence.

Counsel to the defendant, Abubakar Marshall who held briefs for the lead Counsel, Mr  Femi Falana, asked the court to quash the charges preferred against El-Zakzaky by the government for not “disclosing an offence known to law contrary to section 36  sub (8) and (12) of the 1999 constitution as amended”.
