The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) has raised the alarm the federal government has allegedly prevented the doctors from treating its leader, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky in India.
The Nation reports that the secretary general, Academic Forum of the IMN, Abdullahi Musa, who briefed reporters in Abuja on the development claimed the security agencies that accompanied El-Zakzaky have just given him two hours to accept to be treated as a criminal.
Earlier, El-Zakzaky condemned how he was being treated at the Indian hospital, describing it as “pathetic and worrisome situation”.
According to the Shiite leader, conditions at the Indian hospital he was taken to was worse than that of Nigeria.
He stated this in an audio message recorded in Hausa language as he further alleged that the management of Medanta Hospital, New Delhi, had been threatened not to admit him for treatment.
“The hospital officials received us well they told us that they parked two ambulance vehicles, deceiving the crowd while taking us out through another way, saying that it was for our own safety.
“On getting to the hospital, we are placed under a tighter security situation worse than what we have been witnessing in Nigeria. We are currently more confined than when we were in Nigeria, worse than prison setting," he reportedly said.
Recall that Legit.ng had reported that El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, arrived India where they were both billed for treatment.
The duo arrived Delhi, India in the morning of Tuesday, August 13, many hours after they left the shores of Nigeria.
