I'm alive and kicking - Ibrahim El-Zakzaky

The clarification by the DSS on El-Zakzaky's health condition came on the heels of speculations of his worsening state of health and rumours of death.

Mr. El-Zakzaky said he had been allowed access to his personal physician for the first time, and thanked Nigerians for their prayers.

The cleric and his wife sustained gunshot wounds during their arrests. "But he is very sick", Mr. Falana said.

The Shiite leader who was dressed in a white flowing gown with turban was literally ambushed by journalists at the detention facility in a plot obviously executed by the DSS to take sail out of the rumour that he has died in their custody. He has developed stroke in detention.

His followers, who are also known as Shiites, have staged series of protests in some northern states, including Abuja, calling for his release.

The rumoured death had culminated in members of his sect staging protests on the streets of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja and Kaduna, with police using teargas to disperse them and arresting some of the protesters.
