Members protested at Utako axis in Abuja, over the continued detention of El-Zakzaky who has been in detention since December 2015.

The demonstrators besieged the roundabout leading to Utako Market, and caused artificial hindrances.

The protesters, who formed a circle at the roundabout, were chanting, “Government free El-Zakzaky, release our leader.”

Stern looking police officers also monitored proceedings to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
