The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife are on their way back to Nigeria without completing the medical treatment they traveled for.
A video released by aides to Ibrahim El-ZakZakky show the IMN leader saying irreconcilable differences between him, the indian hospital and Nigeria’s security officials, is the reason he is returning to Abuja.
The IMN leader, his wife and some aides left Nigeria on Monday for a medical treatment in India as ordered by a Court in Kaduna.
Four days after, the Sheihk is coming back.
The group in a statement issued and signed on Thursday by the president of its Media Forum, El-Zakzaky’s decision to return home followed lack of breakthrough in the impasse that ensued in the treatment in New Delhi.
The message reads: “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, Nigeria.
“In a video message sent through his office, the Sheikh said it was decided that they will be taken to the airport to be flown back to Nigeria. He has left Delhi by 17:00 Nigerian time.
“He prayed that may that be the best option in the circumstances.
“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. The government never wanted the medical leave in the first place, and did whatever to stop it by all means possible. Similarly the role played by American embassy in New Delhi ha s succeed in scuttling the trust the Sheikh had on the Mendata hospital.
“The Islamic Movement is not happy with the latest development, and we believe any peace loving person in Nigeria feels the same.
“As we await his arrival, we pray to almighty Allah to continue protecting him from the enemies of peace, who are behind the Zaria genocide of December, 2015, Musa said in a statement.
