The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), also known as Shi’ites, has said the federal government is working against the treatment of its leader,  Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, in India.

El-Zakzaky and his wife had on Monday left Nigeria for the Asian country for medical treatment, in company of some family members and security operatives.

But in a statement on Tuesday, Abdullahi Musa, secretary of academic forum of the movement, said “reports reaching us from the hospital indicate that the security agents are colluding with foreign security agents believed to be working for American government,” the statement read.

“Even before the Sheikh arrived the hospital, we gathered from competent source that officials of American embassy in India instructed management of the hospital not to admit the Sheikh for treatment.

“The source added  that even as the doctors were enthusiastically waiting to receive the Sheikh to save his life, the American secret agents have threatened the hospital officials not to go ahead to treat the Sheikh at the hospital.”

The group, however, called on international community and “people of conscience” to prevail on the Nigerian government and its “western masters” to stop playing with the life of their leader.
