Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, is back in the country following a botched medical trip to India.
He arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at 11:40am but operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) prevented journalists and some of his supporters from having access to him.
TheCable gathered that immediately the Ethiopian Airlines flight conveying El-Zakzaky and Zeenat, his wife, touched down, the security operatives drove an ambulance to the tarmac and picked them up.
They were said to have been taken through the presidential wing of the airport.
El-Zakzaky was on his way back to the country without getting medical attention in India following complains from the Muslim cleric that he was to be treated by doctors he doesn’t know.
He, his wife, some family members and security operatives had left the country on Monday but 48 hours after he landed in India, the cleric raised the alarm that he was being frustrated.
The federal government had refuted his claim, accusing him of violating the terms of the Kaduna high court which granted him medical leave.
