Sheikh Ibrahim El-zakzaky has left Abuja for India for medical treatment.
The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria left with his wife and other security personnel aboard an Emirate Airline number EK2614.
El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja earlier on Monday, following the order of a Kaduna State High court which granted them leave to undergo treatment at an Indian hospital of their choice.
This followed an application by El-Zakzaky’s counsel and human rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN), to allow them to travel for treatment as a result of their deteriorating health condition.
Justice Darius Khobo subsequently granted the leave on August 5, adding that representatives from the Kaduna State Government would accompany the IMN leader and his spouse overseas.0
It is expected that their trial will resume as soon as they return from the trip.
