El-Zakzaky and wife to embark on another medical trip

The embattled leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, will soon embark on another medical trip.

Like the botched trip to Delhi, India, the Shiite leader would be accompanied by security operatives, The Nation reports.

A top member of the IMN, who spoke with a correspondent of The Nation in confidence, said the Department of State Services (DSS) is preventing El-Zakzaky’s family members and close associate from visiting, adding that they have since collected their phones.

El-Zakzaky and wife were taken to the DSS facility in Kaduna on arrival aboard an Ethiopian Airline flight E 9-11 by noon on August 16, at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
