Sheikh Zakzaky office opens in Mashhad
An office of Nigerian top Shia cleric and leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky was launched in the northeastern Iranian holy city of Mashhad on Tuesday.

Hawzah News Agency (Mashhad, Iran) - Sheikh Zakzaky has been in custody in Nigeria on trumped-up charges since 2015.

In December 2015, the Nigerian army raided the residence of Sheikh Zakzaky.

Nigerian troops killed over 300 of the cleric’s supporters, including three of his sons.

Despite a court ruling that ordered his unconditional release in 2016, the government of the African country refuses to set him free.

Sheikh Zakzaky’s deteriorating health condition has been a matter of serious concern for his supporters.
