Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), has been imprisoned at an unknown location without charge since December 2015 after his followers clashed with the army in the northern city of Zaria.

On Saturday, PRNigeria provided the transcript from one-minute, 20 second of the interaction Sheikh El-zakzaky had with journalists at a Safe Facility in Abuja.

This week, Nigerian social media had been awash with rumours that Zakzaky had died.

In a brief video on Channels, Mr. El-Zakzaky is seen walking unsteadily out of a building to speak to journalists.

He was obviously seen spotting a neck collar in the short clip released and he was heard confirming that for the first time the security agents allowed him to see his doctors.

Tottenham are now fifth in the league table with 41 points from 22 matches, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool. Everton arrived in the capital without a win in six and having lost each of their last three league fixtures.

"So it was my own doctors who examined me".

Addressing reporters in his first public appearance since his arrest in 2015, Zakzaky thanked the public for their prayers, saying he was getting better. That followed recent wave of incessant street actions calling for his release all over the country as well as globally following reports of his deteriorating health condition in detention.

At least 350 Shia members were killed in the onslaught which has elicited criticisms of the army by human rights groups, including Amnesty International.

You will recall that a Federal High Court had ordered that El-Zakzaky be unconditionally released in 2016 but the Shiite leader is still in detention. The government refused to obey the order.
