Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has claimed that the state of the hospital he was admitted to in India is worse than the hospitals in Nigeria.
El-Zakzaky who conveyed the message via audio, in his Hausa dialect alleged that the Nigerian government is determined to frustrate his medical treatment in India.
He described the condition of the hospital in India as “pathetic and worrisome”.
According to him, the management Medanta Hospital, New Delhi, had been warned not to admit him for treatment.
“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 were placed under a tighter security situation worse than what we have witnessed in Nigeria. We are currently more confined than when we were in Nigeria, worse than a prison setting.
El-Zakzaky said that the government breached the agreement they had, noting that it was agreed that their own personal doctors would supervise this treatment but the arrangement changed. “So, we objected to receiving treatment from strange doctors without the supervision of our own trusted physicians,’’ he noted.
In the audio, the IMN leader said he wants to return to Nigeria to source for a reliable and trusted hospital among those countries that offered help.
“There are some other countries that volunteered to help which include Malaysia, Turkey,’’ He said.
Recall that on Monday the 12th of August, the cleric leader traveled to India along with his wife Zeenah, for urgent medical attention, following a Kaduna court order last week.
The IMN leader and wife have been detained since 2015. They are being tried for alleged culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of public peace among other charges.
