Barely 96 hours after landing in New Delhi, India, for medical treatment, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, has discharged himself from the Medenta Hospital and is expected to arrive in Nigeria on Friday (today) morning.
El-Zakzaky was flown to Medenta Hospital in New Delhi alongside his wife, Zenaat, on Monday for medical treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
He had however complained about the situation in India, saying he was caged and not allowed any freedom.
The Chairman of Free El-Zakzaky Committee, Abubakar Abdurahman, said on Wednesday that the IMN leader might be brought back to Nigeria if the condition of the hospital did not improve.
The President, Media Forum of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, confirmed to one of our correspondents that El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, left New Delhi around 5pm Nigerian time.
The 8,080-kilometre journey by air from India to Lagos, according to travelwatch.com, will last 10 hours and 34 minutes.
