El-Zakzaky May Be Barred from Other Overseas Treatment

The Federal Government may bar the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, from other overseas treatment, Saturday PUNCH has gathered.

Following reports of the IMN leader’s alleged moves to internationalise his agitations and unruly behaviour in India, it was learnt that the Federal Government might take into account security reports it already had on the IMN leader which indicated he planned to consolidate foreign support for his group.

Top security officials confirmed to Saturday PUNCH that El-Zakzaky’s attitude and activities during his visit to India only confirmed intelligence reports the government already had on the embattled Shiite leader.

A top intelligence officer told one of our correspondents on condition of anonymity on Friday that the Shiite leader might not have another opportunity of travelling overseas for medical treatment.

“I can tell you that it is very unlikely the Federal Government would allow him to travel abroad for treatment again. With what he has done confirming some of the security reports we had on him already, the government is not likely to allow him to travel abroad again, even if the court rules otherwise,” the source said.
