Emerging report reaching TOS TV, on Monday, August 12, disclosed that the Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, will in the next few hours depart the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, to India, for medical treatment.
TOS TV gathered that the development followed the order of the Kaduna State High Court, which granted El-Zakzaky and his wife leave to undergo treatment at an Indian Hospital of their choice.
The order came after the couple had spent over three years in custody.
The court had ordered that they should be released by the Department of State Security Services (DSS), to go for treatment and return for the continuation of their trial, after their discharge from the Hospital.
Already, El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenah, have arrived at the Airport in preparation for their flight to Medenta Hospital, New Delhi, India, for medical treatment.
The IMN Spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, who confirmed the statement said: “Yes, the Sheikh has arrived at the Airport with his wife, for their trip to India. They would be leaving in the next few hours.”
The IMN Leader would be accompanied on the trip by the DSS Operatives, as ordered by the court.
It was learnt that they would be travelling on a privately chartered aircraft.
When asked if the IMN Leader fulfilled the conditions imposed by the Kaduna State Government, Musa explained that he had no information on it.
