Following an inability to reach an agreement with the Indian hospital Medenta and authorities about 96 hours after landing in New Delhi for medical treatment, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, is on his way back to Nigeria
The President, Media Forum of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, confirmed tojournalists that El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, who were airborne, left New Delhi around 5:00 p.m. Nigerian time.
A statement signed by Musa allegs interference by the Federal Government for the scuttling of the IMN leader’s planned treatment.
“Following lack of 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.
“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.”
