The Federal Government has accused the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, of unruly behaviour in India.

The government made the allegation in a statement on Wednesday by the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Information and Culture, Grace Gekpe.

This followed claims by members of the IMN that their leader was being treated like a criminal under heavy security surveillance in India.

They also alleged that El-Zakzaky, who was flown to Medenta Hospital in New Delhi alongside his wife, Zenaat, was being caged and not allowed any form of freedom.

But the government described the allegations as “foul cry”, stressing that claims the IMN leader was held in circumstances worse than he was in Nigeria should be disregarded.

According to it, El-Zakzaky was allowed to embark on the trip with state officials in line with a court order, while his choice to be accompanied by his aides and personal doctors was not opposed.

The government said the IMN leader chose the hospital where he was admitted in India, but he began to display “ulterior motives” against laid down procedures.

It added that El-Zakzaky requested that his passport be handed over to him and declined to subject himself to preliminary medical checks.

The government accused the IMN leader of frustrating the Indian authorities which said it would return him to Nigeria with immediate effect.

It, however, commended the stand of the country and apologised to India, noting that El-Zakzaky’s prosecution would continue when he returns to the country. (Channels TV)
