El-Zakzaky’s wife tests negative for Coronavirus —Prison Authorities Confirm

1 Mins read

The NCoS spokesman, CC Francis Enobore, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

Zeenat, the wife of the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, who is in the custody of the Nigerian Correctional Service has tested negative for COVID-19 virus.

Zeenat El-Zakzaky was said to have contracted the infection while in custody prompting the court to order her evacuation to an isolation centre, although the order was later reversed following her recovery.

But not convinced by the reports of her recovery, the Correctional Service insisted on conducting a COVID-19 test on her in collaboration with the Kaduna State government, her personal physician and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

“Happily, the test result has been released and the inmate, including her contacts have no trace of COVID-19 virus. It is important to state with emphasis that Zeenat El-Zakzaky never contracted COVID-19 infection as was alleged,” the statement read.

It said the acting Controller-General of Corrections, John Mrabure, expressed his deep appreciation to members of the public for their cooperation in obeying the restriction guidelines to custodial centres.

He assured the public that the service would continue to observe the COVID-19 protocols and strengthen her effort to prevent the virus from getting into any custodial centre.

El-Zakzaky and his wife have been in detention since 2015 after his followers clashed with soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna.

The IMN leader is standing trial for alleged culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and disruption of public peace.
