Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat, departed the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja Monday evening for their trip to India for medical treatment.
This was sequel to the order of Justice Darius Khobo of the Kaduna State High Court granting El-Zakzaky and his wife leave to undergo treatment at an Indian hospital of their choice. El-Zakzaky , and his wife , had last week turned down the Federal Government’s offer of a private jet for their Indian medical trip which they embarked upon. A source at the airport told reporters on Monday that officers from National Intelligence Agency were already on ground to accompany them to India in line with the order of the Kaduna State High Court. El-Zakzaky and his wife have been in protective custody in Kaduna after the court ruling.
