The controversial leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), known also as Shiites, Ibrahim El-Zakzaki and his wife are said to have been on their way back to Nigeria from India, alleging that they were ‘harassed’ in India.
Information reaching us indicated that El-Zakzaky departed New Delhi along with his wife in a commercial airline today, August 15 at about 5pm Nigerian time
A London-based Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) non-profit organization, said in a statement today, August 15: “Sheikh Zakazky and Mallimah Zinat have stated they will return to Nigeria rather than continue to be harassed and denied the medical care they require in India,”
The couple were quoted as having said that New Delhi was preventing them from contacting their own medical team, lawyers, advocates and even friends at Abuja’s request.
The Human Rights Commission stressed that the couple had “lost all faith” in the prospect of receiving proper treatment in India.
“The actions of the Indian authorities in facilitating the harassment of the couple at the hands of the Nigeria security services are extraordinary.”
