During the hearing on Wednesday, counsel to the IMN leader, Femi falana, told the court that the continuous detention of his client by the Federal Government his against his constitutional rights.

Counsel to the Federal Government, Tijani Ghazali, in his submission told the court that El-Zakzaky is being held under protective custody due to intelligence report that his life is under threat.

After listening to the argument from counsel, Justice Kolawole advised parties in the suit to explore resolving the suit through Alternative Dispute Resolution.

He thereafter adjourned the case for judgement, if they are unable to reach an agreement.
