Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (aka Shiite), is set for his medical trip to India.
El-Zakzaky will be travelling with his wife, Zeenat, following the permission granted them by the Federal High Court in Kaduna last week.
Naija Buzz News had reported how the court in Kaduna granted the Shiites leader and his wife permission to visit New Delhi, India, for treatment of injuries caused by pellets of gunshot in their body since 2015 when his followers clashed with the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai.
El-Zakzaky and his wife had been incarcerated by the Department of State Services (DSS) since December 2015.
The DSS had promised that it would comply with the court order last week.
Details reaching us reveal that the Shiites leader and his wife are currently at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, in company of DSS operatives ahead of the trip today.
