Mohammed El-Zakzaky, the son of embattled leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria otherwise known as ‘Shiites’, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, says his father is gradually going blind in the Department of State Security detention facility.
In a statement issued in Kaduna on Friday, Mohammed said El-Zakzaky was dying slowly.
According to him, the IMN leader is systematically and slowly being reduced to a complete blind man.
The leader of the IMN has been in detention since December 2015 without being charged to court or prosecuted contrary to the laws. Meanwhile the soldiers who coordinated the slaughter of his are walking free.
The 30-year-old threatened to embark on hunger strike and also trek from his father’s house in Zaria, Kaduna State, to Abuja in protest against the alleged unjust treatment of his father by the government.
Mohammed said, “My father urgently needs to see a doctor. He is currently being treated shabbily and this has affected his sight badly and gradually crippling him. The DSS and co can spread all the lies they want but they shouldn’t insult us, my father needs to see a doctor immediately for his life to be saved.
“It is true that I am weak and powerless in the face of such unfathomable levels of evil madness, reckless hatred, extreme prejudice and limitless inhumanity. The only thing I can do now is to complain, and protest by any means available.
“I want to call all those who believe in the inalienable right of all human beings to fairness, justice and dignity, to help by joining me in protesting this seemingly unending series of outrages.”
