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, Nigeria.
El Zakzaky departed New Delhi in a commercial airline at 5pm Nigerian time.
In a video message sent through his office, the Sheikh said it was decided that they would be flown back to Nigeria.
He prayed that may that be the best option in the circumstances.
A top member of of Islamic Human Right Commission (IHRC) which negoatiated the medical treatment in India said that 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.
