The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) also known as Shi’ites has accused the federal government of frustrating the proposed medical treatment of their leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, in India.

The Movement accused the Nigerian government working together with American secret service of frustrating the medical treatment of their leader at Madenta Hospital, New Delhi, India.

This was disclosed by Abdullahi Musa, the group’s Secretary of Academic Forum of the group in Abuja on Tuesday in a press statement.

He stated that the security agents, who accompanied El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, have connived with foreign security agents and threatened the management of the hospital not to admit him for treatment.

He said the management of Madenta Hospital, New Delhi, had been threatened not to admit him for treatment by some foreign authority.

The statement read in part, “Reports reaching us from the hospital indicate that the security agents are colluding with foreign security agents believed to be working for the American Government.

Musa added, “We are calling on the international community and people of conscience and humanity, especially those that facilitated the trip of the Sheikh to India for treatment to prevail on the Nigerian Government and it’s allies to stop playing with the life of our leader.”
