Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, has refused treatment from those he called unknown doctors put in place to treat him in India.

The Shiites leader is insisting that he wants to be treated by those booked to treat him before he and his wife left from Nigeria.

A member of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) made the disclosure to PRNigeria anonymously on Wednesday.

He lamented that the attitude of the Indian government.

The top official said the country was acting as thought El-Zakzaky was a common criminal even when no court in Nigeria had convicted him.

The source further disclosed that the Indian government has given El-Zakzaky deadline to leave if he refuses to receive treatment from doctors available to treat him who had been cleared by their government.

“I just received a piece of very worrying news from the Indian government that ultimatum has been given to the Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria to leave India if he does not agree to the Doctors specified to treat him.

“From the way this is going, he is being treated extremely bad”, the IHRC representative said.

“Under the current situation, it seems he has no choice other than to go back to Nigeria. He has been given some hours to respond to their ultimatum.

“This is to me is totally, utterly unacceptable by any standard, either international standards or Indian standards or that of humanity”, the IHRC top official said.

He further noted that “This is a man that has not been found guilty of anything to the extent that in his own country, the highest court has granted him permission that he should be treated.

“The Indian government by their behaviour depicts Sheikh El-Zakzaky as a criminal. This is really outrageous and those who stand for justice should please respond.”

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has claimed its operatives were attacked by thugs loyal to former Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Tuesday.

The EFCC had gone to execute a search warrant on Ambode’s residence in his hometown, Epe.

Wilson Uwujaren, the agency’s Head of Media and Publicity, said in a statement on Tuesday evening that the commission “had obtained a valid warrant to conduct a search on Ambode’s residences in Park View, Ikoyi and country home in Epe, as part of an ongoing investigation of alleged malfeasance.”

According to him, the operatives were attacked and prevented from executing the search warrant in Epe, by “irate youths” who injured three officers and damaged the EFCC official vehicle.

“The attack was totally unprovoked as the Commission’s operatives were civic and did not molest anybody.

“The Commission, therefore, frowns at the attempt to manipulate the video of the search to create the wrong impression that officers of the agency molested residents at the Epe home of the governor.

“It is also not true that the search was an attempt to plant foreign currencies in the home of the former governor,” he added.

The agency had earlier denied carrying out a raid on Ambode’s residence, insisting that its operatives were on a legitimate duty.
