The detained Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), popularly known as Shiite Group, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, on Saturday afternoon made his first public appearance in over two years.

El-Zakzaky was allowed to speak with journalists by the Department of State Services (DSS), in whose custody he is. His followers have mounted ceaseless protests for his release in respect of court orders but the Federal Government has refused to oblige.

Below, courtesy of PRNigeria, is the transcript from the one-minute, 20 second interaction with Sheikh El-Zakzaky with journalists at a safe facility in Abuja. He walked towards the journalist in a white flowing gown with turban.

The journalists moved towards him. They were cracking jokes and continued thus:

Journalist: Good Afternoon sir?

Sheikh El-Zakzaky: How are you?

Journalist: Can we have a word with you?

Sheikh El-Zakzaky: If they agree and allow me (He says so jokingly)

Journalist: How are you feeling now?

Sheik El-Zakzaky: I feel better. The security (officers) have allowed me to see my doctor, my personal doctor. I thank God. I am improving.

Journalist: Do you have anything to add.

Sheikh El-Zakzaky: I thank you for all your prayers

Journalist: Thank you, Sir.

Sheikh ElZakzaky: Thanks. (As he walked away)
