Report that El-Zakzaky, who faces an 8-charge charge in a homicide case filed by the Kaduna State Government, was granted for medical treatment by a Kaduna High Court on Aug. 5.

Falana, in a statement yesterday, said: “It is disturbing that the planned medical treatment of Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife in India was aborted and since then they have returned to Nigeria.

“However, in view of their critical health conditions, the El-Zakzakys and FG suppose urgently reach an understanding to facilitate that kind medical treatment in Nigeria.

“In other words, since the Federal Government is apparently not prepared to allow the couple to seek medical treatment abroad for fear that they may seek political asylum, the authorities should provide adequate medical equipment for their treatment in Nigeria without any further delay.

“The unfortunate episode had embarrassed the Federal Government and that Nigeria has become a laughing stock to the extent that her leaders and citizens (who have the financial wherewithal) have to travel abroad for medical treatment.

“For goodness sake in what way was the Indian Government offended by the insistence of the El-Zakzakys to be treated by doctors of their choice?”
