Minister Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that it costs the Nigerian governments N3.5 million naira a month to feed Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, otherwise known as Shiite.
Mr. Mohammed made the statement which has gone viral on social media on Wednesday, following the decision of the Kaduna court which denied the IMN leader bail.
According to Mohammed, ”Please the issue of where El-Zakzaky is should be kept off the record. It cost the Federal government about N3.5 million every month to feed him, this is a fact.
“We don’t want to inflame passion because its a very sensitive matter but that is the situation. The Islamic Movement of Nigeria are a different kind of group.”
