El-Zakzaky, Wife Arrive Abuja Airport Enroute India


    The leader of the Shi’ite Movement in Nigeria, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, and his wife, have arrived at the Abuja international airport on their way to India.
    A close associates of the cleric who is a member of his medical team told reporters that he arrived the airport Monday afternoon and will be flown in a private chartered aircraft to India.
    According to him, “I can confirm that he is on his way to India today in a chartered aircraft”.
    The development comes a week after Shikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky was granted bail by a Kaduna State High Court to travel to India for medical treatment.
    The Shiite leader’s health had been a cause for concern and a major ground for dispute between his followers and Nigerian authorities.
    They were also concerns that he may die in custody if not treated urgently.
    This trip would be the first time that El-Zakzaky would go anywhere else but the Nigerian government custody since his arrest in December 2015.
    Nigerian soldiers tore down his residence, killed hundreds of his followers and took him into custody.
