His detention followed clashes between his followers and troops of the Nigerian Army in Zaria Kaduna state, leading to the death of more than 300 IMN members.

El-Zakzaky is in detention alongside his wife, Zeenat.

The couple have been in detention in spite of a court order ordering their release.

The government said they are kept in protective custody for their own safety
