Right thinking Nigerians are always asking questions on what offence has Sheikh Zakzaky committed that deserved to be detained with his wife despite the fact that they need urgent foreign medical treatment, having lost 3 of their sons, their house and properties were burnt and later demolished by Nigerian security operatives but government has failed to persecute him for committing any offence before court of competent jurisdiction.

The extra judicial killings of over 1000 innocent shia Muslims in Zaria on the pretext of road blockade to Chief of Army Staff TukurBurutai remained indelible in the history of Nigerian Democracy, Buhari's government has justified Zaria massacre as Army/Shi’ite clash but hundreds of Shi’ite are being detained in various detention centers but no single Nigerian Army was arrested and prosecuted in connection with the Zaria atrocities
On 2-12-2016 Justice Gabriel Kolawale of Federal High court Abuja had declared that the detention of Sheikh Zakzaky with his wife Malama Zenatudden as illegal, unconstitutional and awarded the sum of 50 millions compensation for their unlawful detention by Department of State Services but government refused to obey Court order
President Buhari turned deep ear to the appeal by prominent Nigerians, Human right groups, legal luminaries, and international communities to temper justice with Mercy in the interest of peace and tranquility in Nigeria to release Sheikh Zakzaky, instead Nigerian police clamped down on series of Free Zakzaky peaceful protest in Abuja and Kaduna by firing teargas canister, water cannons, and live bullets which claimed lives of innocent Nigerians and others sustained various degrees of gun injuries since January when the heath condition of the Islamic scholar deteriorated.
In 2015 Nigerians were tired of insecurity, chaos, mayhem and insurgency which resulted to the death of thousands innocent Nigerians, they used their constitutional powers to vote out President Jonathan of power and elected President Buhari, unfortunately 6 months after his swearing in thousands of innocent Shia Muslims were extra judicially killed by Nigerians Army, since then security operatives in Nigeria attacked various Islamic centers belonging to Islamic Movement during their religious gathering
The rate of insecurity in Nigeria today is worst than during the past regime of President Good luck Jonathan, kidnapping was not known along Abuja-Kaduna road, Fulani/herdsmen clash, southern Kaduna clash, Taraba Fulani clash and Benue killing had claimed lives of thousands innocent Nigerians. I strongly believe Nigerians are ready to use their vote to push this government out of power in 2019
