Security officers have sealed all roads leading to the Kaduna State High Court, where the trial of Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, and his wife, Zeenat is taking place.

The court presided over by Justice Gideon Kurada is expected to deliver judgement on a no-case submission filed by El-Zakzaky, Daily Trust reports.

Zakzaky and his wife have been standing trial in the court for the past four years on an eight-count charge of alleged culpable homicide, disruption of public peace and unlawful assembly among others levelled against them by the Kaduna State Government.

The hearing resumes today, and the pair was escorted to court by Nigerian Correctional Service personnel under strict protection.
