Embattled leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky was flown out of Nigeria for treatment of gun shot injuries he suffered during the encounter between his supporters and members of the Nigerian Army last year, multiple security sources told Vanguard in Abuja yesterday.



It would be recalled that during the bloody encounter between members of the Shiites and the Nigerian Army, several members of the sect were killed while many others sustained various degrees of injuries with some still on admission at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital in Shika near Zaria.
The fracas occurred when members of the sect allegedly blocked the Zaria-sokoto road and prevented the convoy of the chief of Army staff from passing through despite several entreaties.

Sheikh El-Zakzaky allegedly sustained several gun shot wounds with some reports claiming that one of his eyes was affected during the encounter.

Since the clash between the sect and the Military, his whereabouts has been shrouded in secrecy until vanguard exclusively revealed that he was moved from Kaduna to a safe house in Abuja belonging to one of the security services.

Several security sources who are knowledgeable in the matter however revealed to Vanguard yesterday that due to the seriousness of the injuries the Shiite leader sustained, he was secretly flown to France by the Nigerian government some weeks ago for treatment before being returned to the country two weeks ago.

When Dasuki seeked for medicare abroad....the excuse was...there are hospitals in Nigeria that can treat his illness....question is, are there no hospitals to treat the leader of the shiites which the government referred to as terrorist....and OBJ and Sultan pleading....these people did not plead when Kanu is being detained illegally even after a court has declared him innocent...they did not plead when the people of South East were protesting...Instead of advising the govt to take the peaceful option...they came out and encouraged the government to kill biafrans....I am a firm believer of one Nigeria regardless of what some few Nigerians say or do....but it's becoming clear and clearer that the North and South West do not see the South South and South East as equal Nigerians....

Please Nigeria government, do something to this issue before it becomes deadlier than Boko Haram. We have enough problems to deal with not the ones that will compound the whole things to go even worse.
