Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), often known as Shiites, has been labelled a liar by the Department of State Security Service.
On Monday, the DSS accused El-Zakzaky of lying to them.
While he was in detention, the Service denied diverting money destined for him and his wife.
In an interview with Punch over the weekend, Zakzaky said that while they were held, the DSS diverted N4 million in monthly allowance allocated for them.
He also said that they were responsible for their own food and utilities.

Dr Peter Afunanya, the Service’s Public Relations Officer, said it was a deception intended to discredit the security service.
Afunanya said in a WhatsApp message: “This is a complete falsehood spread by someone desirous of maligning a noble organisation like the DSS.
“The Service is completely guided by the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) which governs its suspect handling rules.
“It is unfortunate someone like him chose to lie. Possible he lost complete memory about the facts and the truth.
“The DSS doesn’t maltreat suspects. While in India years back, he chose or preferred to be returned to the DSS custody.
“Why? Because according to him, he had better treatment. So, we will ignore him.
“Those who have issues before the court should face their cases and stop blaming the DSS.
“We respect the laws and will always be governed by the principles of rule of law.
“The DGSS, Alhaji Yusuf Magaji Bichi, is a democrat who respects rules of engagement and democracy.”
