The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shiites, has alleged that the Federal Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, is frustrating the medical treatment of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, in India.
Naija News had reported earlier that the Shiites leader arrived India alongside his wife for medical treatment after they were granted leave by a Kaduna High Court.
El-Zakzaky was accompanied to India by some family members and security operatives.
Reacting to the treatment of the Shiites leader, Abdullahi Musa, the secretary of the academic forum of the movement, alleged that the Buhari government and some “security operatives working for the US” were conniving to ensure that the Shiites leader would not be treated.
The Shiites’ academic forum secretary said the management of Madenta Hospital, New Delhi, had been threatened not to admit him for treatment.
His words: “Reports reaching us from the hospital indicate that the security agents are colluding with foreign security agents believed to be working for American government.
“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 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,” the statement read.
Shiites, however, urged the international community and “people of conscience” to prevail on the Buhari government and its “western masters”, to stop playing with El-Zakzaky’s life.
