Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, has commended the ruling of the Kaduna State High Court which ordered the release of the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat for medical treatment.
Mr Falana, said allowing them to go for medical treatment abroad has saved the country from a major crisis.
“I was pleased to learn last night that the State Security Service announced that the order will be complied with and I think that is a good development,” he said.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria also called for the immediate release of others in custody.
“I do hope that other court orders including the one of Dasuki will be complied with so that we can join the rest of the committee of civilized nations”.
