Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, are set to travel to India for medical treatment.
They arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Monday where they would be taking off from, following the order of the 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, thereafter, granted the leave on August 5, adding that the IMN leader and his wife would be accompanied abroad by officials of the Kaduna State Government.
Their trial is expected to resume as soon as they return from the trip.
