El-Zakzaky already lost an eye, bullets still in wife’s body, Falana tells court

The Department of State Services has assured that it will comply and grant Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, a leave to get medical treatment following a court order.

A Kaduna High Court had earlier on Monday ordered the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to release the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and his wife, Zeenat, so that they could seek medical treatment in India.

Justice Darius Khobo in his ruling ordered that the IMN leader and his wife be accompanied abroad by officials of the Kaduna State government. He, however, did not give any time frame as to how long they will stay in India.

Dr. Peter Afunanya, Public Relations Officer of DSS, in a statement on Monday, said the agency was working with other relevant agencies to ensure compliance with the court.

He said, “This is to inform the public that the Department of State Services has received the order granting Ibrahim El-Zakzaky leave to travel to India for medical treatment.

“Consequently, the Service is liaising with relevant stakeholders to ensure compliance.

“Conformity with the order is in line with the Service’s avowed commitment to the rule of law inherent in a democracy.”
