WASHINGTON (TODAY NEWS AFRICA USA) – The Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has refused treatment from “unknown doctors” chosen by the India government in collaboration with the Nigerian government.

The doctors who were billed to treat the Nigerian Shi’ite leader were different from those billed and booked to treat him before his departure from Nigeria.

El-Zakzaky, who spent more than four years in detention in Nigeria after soldiers stormed his residence and massacred hundreds of his followers, does not trust the unknown doctors chosen by the Indian government, and perhaps in collaboration with the Nigerian government, and fears that they may want to harm him rather than treat him.

A member of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) who spoke to newswire PRNigeria said the attitude of Indian government has portrayed El-Zakzaky as a common criminal when no court in Nigeria has convicted him.

The source said that the Indian government has given Elzakzaky ultimatum to leave Indian soil if he refuses to receive treatment from unknown doctors billed to treat him.

“I just received a very worrying news from the Indian government that ultimatum has been given to the Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria(IMN) to leave India if he does not agree to the Doctors specified to treat him.  From the way that he is being treated is extremely bad”, the IHRC representative said.

“Under the current situation, it seems he has no choice other than to go back to Nigeria. He has been given some hours to respond to their ultimatum. This is to me is totally, utterly unacceptable by any standard, either international standards or Indian standards or that of humanity”, the IHRC chief said.

He further noted that “This is a man that has not been found guilty of anything to the extent that in his own country, the highest court has granted him permission that he should be treated. The Indian government by their behavior depicts Sheikh Elzakzaky as a common criminal.  This is really outrageous and those who stand for justice should please respond.”
