Suhaila, daughter of Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), disclosed that her father is suffering from lead poisoning which could result to his death.
El-Zakzaky’s daughter, in an interview with BBC, stated that her father merits appropriate medical treatment.
“I am really worried… especially because of the lead and cadmium poisoning,” she said.
“His doctors say if he gets to a certain level his organs could start failing and that’s really scary because that means he could just die at any moment.”
Suhaila revealed that her father told her that he was not pleased with the heavy presence of security operatives at the Medanta Hospital, New Delhi, where he is for treatment.
Ibraheem El-Zakzaky had left Nigeria for India on Monday after he was granted a medical leave by the Kaduna high court.
But on Wednesday, El-Zakzaky raised the alarm that the situation in India was worse than Nigeria. He had said he was denied access to his preferred doctors while security operatives were caging him.
The Federal Government refuted El-Zakzaky’s allegations, stating that he attempted to violate the conditions of his treatment by making unreasonable demands, including insisting on lodging in a five-star hotel in New Delhi with free access to “all manner of visitors.”
Reports reaching us had it that El-Zakzaky has discharged himself from the Medenta Hospital and is now on his way back to Nigeria.
