Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat are expected back in Nigeria, today (Friday) morning.
The Shiites leader and his wife, according to a statement by Ibrahim Musa, spokesman of the movement, are returning from Indian where they had gone for medical treatment.
In his statement, Musa accused the Federal Government of frustrating the treatment of the IMN leader.
“Following lack of a 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,” the statement said.
“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 that may 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,” the statement said.
