Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, the leader of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria aka Shi’ites, has decried the poor state of the Hospital in India he was taken to and has requested to return to Nigeria.
In an audio making the rounds on social media, El-Zakzaky said he fears for his life and that of his wife as the medical doctors his personal doctor in Nigeria referred them to in India, is not the one he and his wife are currently seeing.
Accoridng to him, the Nigerian Embassy in India took him to a totally different hospital which according to him, is worse than the Kirikiri prison.
Speaking in Hausa, El-Zakzaky said
“The hospital officials received us well they told us that they parked two ambulance vehicles, deceiving the crowd while taking us out through another way, saying that it was for our own safety. On getting to the hospital, we are placed under a tighter security situation worse than what we have been witnessed in Nigeria. We are currently more confined than when we were in Nigeria, worse than prison setting.
“Contrary to what was agreed before our arrival, that our own personal doctors would supervise this treatment. Now they’ve changed the arrangement. So, we objected receiving treatment from strange doctors without the supervision of our own trusted physicians.
Godwilling, we will be going back to Nigeria so that we will be able to travel to another place since we have that approval. Since we can’t trust India any longer, there are some other countries like Malaysia, Indonesia and Turkey who have offered to admit us. We will go back home and decide which one to go for,’’ he said.
