Mr Femi Falana, SAN, Counsel to El-Zakzaky and his wife, had filed the application on behalf of his clients on July 18 wherein he prayed the court to allow his client seek medical attention abroad.

He had argued that the health condition of his clients was getting worse and needed urgent medical attention abroad.

But the prosecuting counsel Debris Bayero opposed the bail application, arguing that the Shiites’ leader should seek local medical attention.

El-Zakzaky and his wife are facing an eight-count of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly, disturbance of public peace.

The federal government had proscribed the activities of the group 48 hours ago, but, the presidency said the order which would be gazetted on Monday, does not forbid adherents of the group from practicing its religion.
