Sheikh Ibrahim El-zakzaky has left Abuja in company of his wife to India for medical treatment.
The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, left with his wife and other security personnel as ordered by the Kaduna state High Court judge, aboard an Emirate Airline number EK2614.
Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja earlier on Monday, following the order of a Kaduna State High court which granted them leave to undergo treatment at an Indian hospital of their choice.
The order followed an application by counsel to El-Zakzaky and human rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN), to allow them medical tourism as a result of their deteriorating health condition.
Kaduna State High court Justice Darius Khobo, thereafter, granted the leave on August 5, under the conditions that the IMN leader and his wife would be accompanied abroad by officials of the Kaduna State Government.
Their court trial is expected to resume as soon as they return from their medical trip.
