The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) leader Ibrahim El-Zakzaky is reportedly on his way back to Nigeria days after embarking on a medical trip to India.

Reports from Punch states that the President, Media Forum of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, confirmed that El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, who were airborne as at the time of reporting, left New Delhi around 5:00 p.m. Nigerian time.

Ibrahim said in a statement:

“Following lack of 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.

“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 may that 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.”

El-Zakzaky, who has been in detention since 2015, was granted leave to travel for treatment by a Kaduna High Court. He had lamented his treatment in India by the federal government, and expressed desire to return to Nigeria.

FG had refuted his allegations, saying he attempted to violate conditions of the leave granted to him.
