El-Zakzaky, wife at Abuja Airport on way to India

 

Leader of Nigeria’s radical Shiite group, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and Zeenat, his wife, have arrived at the Abuja international airport on their way to India for medical treatment.

 They arrived at the airport Monday afternoon and will be flown in a private chartered aircraft to India.

They were granted leave by a Kaduna State High Court to travel to India for medical treatment.

The court however added that they should be accompanied on the trip by operatives of the Department of State Services and should return home to continue trial upon completion of their treatment.

The Shiite leader’s health had been a major ground for dispute between his followers and Nigerian authorities, amidst concerns he may die in custody if not treated urgently.

His followers have organized protests in Abuja, many of them violent and fatal, to press home their demand.
