The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has said he saw hell while in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).
He spoke on Thursday when he received the Northern Christian clerics in his Abuja residence, El-Zkzaky said he saw hell during his time in DSS detention.
He added that he miraculously recovered from gunshots allegedly fired at him by the military during the December 2015 attack on his residence in Zaria, Kaduna State.
The IMN leader, however, revealed that he and his wife, Zeenat, still had bullet fragments lodged in their bodies to date, and still suffer from the traumatic experience.
He said: “Our recovery was a miracle, considering the ordeal we passed through during the Zaria attack and detention in DSS custody. We would like to meet more people, but considering our health and the insecurity in the country, we cannot open our doors to everyone just yet.”
El-Zakzaky, however, called on all Nigerians to be kind towards the needy as their contribution towards the elimination of hunger in the country.
Earlier, Reverend John Alhamdu, who led the Christian delegation, called for peaceful co-existence and harmony among Nigerians, urging them to embrace love irrespective of religious differences.
