Abdullahi Musa who is the leader of the protesters said they were ready to die for El-Zakzaky whom they claimed has been poisoned by the government.

He said: “His life is in danger and there is no reason for us to go back and sit down at home. The oppressors always brutalise, oppress and instill fears in the mind of the people. We are ready to die in this cause and we have said it that we must come and they should get ready. If they like they should come and kill us.”

Musa denied that their members shot and wounded policemen in their earlier protest and that policemen in mufti should be held responsible for the destruction.

He said: “We have been protesting. Even yesterday the protest took more than two hours peacefully before the police attacked the protesters. So we will never surrender and we will not stop what we are doing. This is our constitutional rights. It is the right of Sheik El-zakzaky to go for medical treatment and the court has granted him freedom and they should allow him to go.”
