We Spend N3.5 Million Every Month To Feed El-Zakzaky – Lai Mohammed


Court grants El-Zakzaky leave to travel

Lai Mohammed, minister of information has said about N3.5 million is spent every month to feed Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN).

Since December 2015, El-Zakzaky has been denied freedom and has remained in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) despite the bail granted to him by a federal high court.

In a video trending online, the minister asked not to be quoted before proceeding to say: “It costs the government about N3.5 million every month to feed him.

“Honestly, don’t quote me, but these are the facts.

“So please. We don’t want to inflame passion. The issue is a very sensitive matter. But that is the situation. The Islamic Movement of Nigeria are a different kettle of fish.”

The leader of the Shi’ites is facing trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, and destruction of peace.

In recent weeks, his followers clashed with security agencies in Abuja, leading to multiple fatalities.
