Justice Darius Khobo of Kaduna State High Court, on Thursday, adjourned hearing  in the application of the leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibrahim El-Zazaky and wife, Zeenat, seeking to travel to India for medical attention to July 29.

The State Director of Public Prosecution, Mr Dari Bayero disclosed this to newsmen on Thursday, shortly after the hearing was adjourned.

Bayero said the adjournment was sequel to an application by the team of Counsel  prosecuting the IMN leader.

The team requested for time to examine the medical reports that accompanied IMN leader's application.

Bayero said the team of the state Counsel needed time to study the medical report for authentication before putting up their argument before the court.

Justice Khobo granted request and adjourned to give time to the state counsel who are prosecuting the substantive suit against the IMN leader and his wife Zeenat.

The IMN leader hás brought the application before the court seeking permission to travel to Medanta Hospital, New Delhi, India for medical attention following his failing health condition.

El-Zazaky  in the application said  he and his wife would return to Nigeria as soon as they are discharged.
The IMN leader is standing trial over allegations of culpable homicide, unlawful assembly and disruption of public peace among other charges.

Justice Gideon Kurada, who was handling the case, on April 25 adjourned the trial of the IMN leader indefinitely.

The indefinite adjournment was to enable the judge serve on the panel of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal in Yobe.

Before the indefinite adjournment, the court had on Tuesday, Jan. 22, ordered the Kaduna State Government to avail the IMN leader and his wife Zinat, access to medical care.

Femi Falana (SAN), the lead counsel to the IMN leader also told newsmen after Thursday's adjournment that his clients, El-Zakzaky and wife Zinat, were in dire need of medical attention.

Falana said that his clients had not been given adequate medical care since their detention on Dec. 14, 2015. 

He expressed concern over the continued detoriation of his clients health.

He expressed opstimism that at the resumed hearing of the application on July 29, the Court would grant them the permission to travel for urgent medical care.
