The leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria Ibrahim El-Zakzaky has raised an alarm over the conditions at the Indian hospital where he is being treated, saying it is worse than that of Nigeria.
The IMN leader who left Nigeria to India on Monday following a Kaduna court order made this known via an audio message that has since gone viral.
The cleric in the audio, where he spoke in Hausa, alleged that the Nigerian government is frustrating his medical treatment in India — adding that the state of the Indian hospital is “pathetic and worrisome situation.”
“The hospital officials received us well they told us that they parked two ambulance vehicles, deceiving the crowd while taking us out through another way, saying that it was for our own safety.
“On getting to the hospital, we are placed under a tighter security situation worse than what we have witnessed in Nigeria. We are currently more confined than when we were in Nigeria, worse than a prison setting.
“Contrary to what was agreed before our arrival, that our own personal doctors would supervise this treatment. Now they’ve changed the arrangement. So, we objected receiving treatment from strange doctors without the supervision of our own trusted physicians,’’ he noted.
“There are some other countries that volunteered to help which include Malaysia, Turkey,’’ he said.
