The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky is back to Nigeria. He arrived around 12.05pm at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and was whisked away by the Department of the state service, DSS.
Recall that Ibrahim Musa, spokesman of the movement, had on Thursday broke the news of El-Zakzaky’s return.
The leader of IMN, had travelled to India along with his wife for a medical treatment. The religious leader in a video released on Thursday, said he was given the option of having his treatment at the hospital or returning to Nigeria.
El-Zakzaky said that while weighing the options with his wife an unnamed officials stormed his room and asked prepare to go home.
Recall also that he had accused the federal government of placing him under heavy security, noting that Kirikiri prison was better than the Indian hospital.
He had equally accused Buhari led government of frustrating his treatment in India.
In view of these allegations, IMN spokesman opined; “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.”
