Security has been beefed up in the Kaduna State capital and environs following the proceedings at the Kaduna State High Court ahead of a ruling on the bail application filed by the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

Justice Darius Khobo will rule on the application filed by the Shiites’ leader who is seeking permission to travel abroad for medical treatment.

The bail hearing which is taken place today, Monday came barely three days after a Federal High Court in Abuja granted the Federal Government the power to label the group.

Although a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and El-Zakzaky’s lawyer, Femi Falana, has condemned the government’s action, describing it as illegal.

The decision was agreed upon by the Government following a series of protests by the Shiites in Abuja, the nation’s capital to demand the release of their leader who has been in detention for more than three years.

More so, recent protests by the group turned violent as they clashed with the police in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) which left many injured and several dead, including a youth corps member serving with Channels Television, Precious Owolabi and a Deputy Commissioner of Police in the FCT Command.

As part of the strategies put in place for a smooth process of the court on Monday, the police have diverted traffic in specific locations and all roads leading to the court complex.

Security operatives were deployed in different areas within the state capital, in order to avert any breakdown of law and order before, during and after the court sitting
