El-Zakzaky: Femi Falana Threatens FG

Date:

 Femi Falana, SAN, the Lawyer to Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, has called the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government to provide an alternative and adequate treatment for the couple in Nigeria.

The Senior Lawyer threatens to file a fresh application for El-Zakzaky and his wife to be re-flown abroad for treatment if his demand is not met.

The Leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky on Friday returned to Nigeria, after refusing treatment in India. 

Recall that El-Zakzaky, who is facing an 8-count charge in a case of homicide filed by the Kaduna State Government, was granted leave for medical treatment by a Kaduna High Court on August 5, 2019.

Subsequently, El-Zakzaky and his wife travelled to India via Dubai for medical treatment after the Federal Government and relevant agencies took steps to comply with the order in spite of protestation by Kaduna State Government.

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

“However, in view of their critical health conditions, the El-Zakzakys and the Federal Government should urgently reach an understanding to facilitate their 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”?
