The Federal Government has said that the leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, who was taken to India for medical treatment, was frustrating the Indian hospital instead of subject himself to treatment.

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria, who was arrested in 2015 following a clash between his members and military personnel in Zaria, was granted bail on medical grounds, following a Kaduna High Court order on August 5th.

El-Zakzaky, along with wife, traveled to India  for medical treatment, after government and relevant agencies took steps to comply with the order.

But the Federal Government, in a statement in Abuja, said that the religious leader is frustrating the authorities of the Indian hospital where he was to be treated.

The statement added that El-Zakzaky refused to subject himself to preliminary medical checks after State officials resisted his pressure to hand over his International Passport to him.
