El-Zakzaky Leaves Indian Hospital After Refusing Treatment

By Dipo Olowookere

Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, has discharged himself from the hospital he initially travelled to for treatment from Nigeria after not agreeing with terms of the medicals.

The Islamic leader had been granted bail last week by the court in Kaduna on medical grounds.

It was said that when he arrived Medenta Hospital in India from Nigeria this week, the leader of Shiite Muslims in the country was alleged to have attempted to violate the conditions of his treatment by making unreasonable demands, including insisting on lodging in a five-star hotel in New Delhi with free access to all manners of visitors.

In a video message sent through his office, the Sheikh said he has decided to leave India and it left Delhi by 17:00 Nigerian time.

“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.

“The Nigerian government’s interference and scuttling of the whole process rather than supervision as ordered by the court is the direct cause of the impasse.”
