Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat will reportedly be embarking on another medical trip which they will be accompanied on by security operatives.
A top IMN source confirmed the planned trip in an interview with The Nation and he also revealed that El-Zakzaky’s family members and close associates have been stopped from visiting by DSS operatives who reportedly seized phones belonging to the Islamic leader and his wife.
The source said: “You know that El-Zakzaky and his wife were immediately taken to Kaduna facility of the DSS immediately they arrived in the country from their medical trip.
“They collected their phones. Now his people want to visit him, but the security operatives are preventing them from visiting.
“Till now, nobody is allowed to visit him. And immediately he and the wife left for India, the security operatives moved some of his personal properties from his home in Kaduna. I learnt they are planning to take him out for another medical trip. But the day is not made known yet.”
Recall that upon arriving Nigeria after a botched trip to India, the couple were taken into a DSS facility in Kaduna on August 16.
