The Islamic Movement of Nigeria claims its detained leader, Sheikh Ibrahim ZakZaky, is going blind.

The IMN claimed the doctor attending to him has passed the message to the authorities, warning that “he could go blind if not given the proper medical attention he deserves without further delay”.

“The way and manner in which the federal government has been handling the health of the fatally injured Sheikh Zakzaky for the past 13 months leaves much to be desired”, the IMN said today.

According to IMN, ZakZaky has been denied access to his own doctor alleging that with the way government has treated him, government wants him to die.

“Thus far, the government has decided to play deaf, dumb and blind, as if all is well.

IMN appealed to Nigerians to join them in mounting pressure on government to release him, in compliance with court order and to enable him attend to his health.”

IMN also called on Acting President, Prof. Osinbajo to obey Court order and free Sheikh Zakzaky.

The Shiite leader and his wife were arrested in Kaduna in December 2015, in the wake of the clash between his followers and the Nigerian military.

The military authorities claimed the Shiite followers wanted to assassinate chief of army staff, General Tukur Buratai, which prompted soldiers to open fire on them. No fewer than 200 Shiite members were killed.

The clash had been a subject of at least two probe panels, the Human Rights Commission and the Kaduna State Government. (NAN)
