The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shiites, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has quit his treatment in Delhi, India and is heading back to Nigeria.
36Naija reports that the Shiites leader is heading back to Nigeria alongside his wife, Zeenah Ibrahim.
The development will be coming three days after the couple embarked on a medical trip to India.
According to TheCable’s source, El-Zakzaky will be coming back to Nigeria after the federal government frustrated his efforts to get treatment in India.
“Following lack of a breakthrough in the impasse that ensued in the treatment in New Delhi of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, it is now confirmed that the Sheikh is on his way back to Abuja,” the statement read.
“In a video message sent through his office, the Sheikh said it was decided that they will be taken to the airport to be flown back to Nigeria. He has left Delhi by 17:00 Nigerian time. He prayed that may that be the best option in the circumstances.
“The Nigerian government’s interference and scuttling of the whole process rather than supervision as ordered by the court is the direct cause of the impasse. The government never wanted the medical leave in the first place, and did whatever to stop it by all means possible.”
