But Usman in a telephone conversation with Daily Trust confirmed that Zakzaky is alive.
“I do not know where people heard such rumours from, but I can confirm to you that our leader is alive. It will not be in the best interest of the government for our leader to die in their custody,” he added.
Daily Trust reports that the news of Zakzaky’s death caused tension in Kaduna as residents were said to have restricted their movement for fear of attack.
