The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), better known as Shiites has raised alarm over the safety of its leader, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat in Madenta Hospital, India.
According to the group, the Federal Government has allegedly prevented doctors from treating the duo in India.
Briefing reporters on Wednesday in Abuja, the Secretary General Academic Forum of the IMN, Abdullahi Musa, said that the Federal Government is forcing El-Zakzaky to accept to be treated as a criminal.
Upon arrival, he revealed that doctors said El-Zakzaky is suffering about eight ailments, including glaucoma, symptoms of Ischemic heart disease, which could lead to Myocardial infraction, severe cervical spondylosis, which has resulted to nerve root compression and causing insomnia, among others.
Speaking on the current situation in India, Musa said after the arrival of Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife at Madenta Hospital in New Delhi, India, Federal Government through it’s security agents that escorted him: “acted in contrary to what was earlier stated in the Kaduna High Court by devising new types of plots to frustrate his Doctors from offering emergency treatment to the Sheikh whose health has seriously deteriorated as a result of the gunshots inflicted on him by the Nigerian army and his subsequent poisoning during his detention in kaduna where he was illegally detained and deprived Medical attention for years. As I am speaking with you, the Federal Government has given El-Zakzaky two hours to accept to be treated as a criminal.”
He added, “They refused to allow the doctors he requested to treat him and his wife access to them completely.
“Sheikh Zakzaky himself in an audio clip from the hospital indicate that the security agents are colluding with foreign security agents believed to be working for the interest of American government thereby violating the Nigerian Court ruling.
“Earlier, even before the Sheikh arrived the hospital, we gathered from competent source that officials of American embassy in India instructed management of the hospital not to admit the Sheikh there for treatment.
“The source added that even as the doctors were enthusiastically waiting to receive the Sheikh to save his life, the American secret agents have threatened the hospital officials not to go ahead to treat the Sheikh at the hospital.
“It is mandatory for the Nigerian Government to immediately do the needful and allow Sheikh Zakzaky to see his Doctors and shun all interests of any entity that doesn’t care for the well being of Nigeria and humanity as large.
“We are also calling on the international community and people of conscience and humanity, especially those that facilitated the travelling of the Sheikh to India for treatment to prevail on the Nigerian Government and it’s western Masters to stop playing with the life of the innocent leader and who is victim of their continuous plot to ensure that he dies.”
