Following a medical bail granted him by the court, incarcerated leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Ibraheem El-zakzaky has arrived in India, where he is expected to get bail.
Backstory: Rejecting the offer to be flown with government charter, El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, boarded an Emirates flight to India yesterday with security escorts from the Nigerian Intelligence Agency and Department for State Services in compliance with court orders. The IMN leader was allowed to leaved the country inspire of the challenge filed by the Kaduna State Government for certain strict supervision conditions to be met before El-Zakzaky was released.
Challenges: Notwithstanding El-Zakzaky’s arrival at his medical facility, the Madenta Hospital in New Delhi, it appears that the IMN leader has encountered challenges with obtaining treatment. A statement released by the academic forum of the IMN alleged that the American government and Nigerian secret service was frustrating the access to treatment for their leader.
- “Reports reaching us from the hospital indicate that the (Nigerian) security agents are colluding with foreign security agents believed to be working for the American Government.
- “Earlier, even before the Sheikh arrived at the hospital, we gathered from competent source that officials of US Embassy in India instructed management of the hospital not to admit him there for treatment.”
