Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), otherwise known as Shiites, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky on the order of court to travel to India for his medical treatment.
A statement today, August 5 by the Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunaya said that the DSS had received the order granting Ibrahim EL-ZAKZAKY leave to travel to India for medical treatment. “Consequently, the Service is liaising with relevant stakeholders to ensure compliance. Conformity with the order is in line with the Service’s avowed commitment to the Rule of Law inherent in a democracy.” Earlier in the day, a Kaduna State High Court had granted the Ibrahim El-Zakzaky bail on health grounds and ordered that he and wife, Zeenatu should be released.
The court said that the prosecution had failed to prove that El-Zakzaky would be a flight risk, even as the defense team had established that the couple’s health had worsened in custody.
The couple is expected to visit Mandeta Hospital in New Delhi, India for treatment.
The order for El-Zakzaky and his wife to travel for medical treatment came a week after his organization was proscribed by the court.
