The leader of Nigeria's Shi'ite Muslim sect, rumoured to have died in detention, made his first public appearance in two years on Saturday, after police arrested dozens of members of the group during protests calling for his release this week.
Also reacting to the issue, Mr Falana in a letter dated November 7 and addressed to the President, demanded the immediate release of El-Zakzaky and his wife since the panel set up to investigate the incident has not recommended that they should be prosecuted indefinitely.
The cleric and his wife had sustained gunshot wounds during their arrests. "He has developed stroke in detention", Falana had said.

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