The Kaduna State High Court granted bail to the imprisoned leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), the Shia Muslim cleric Ibrahim Zakzaky, to seek medical treatment in India. The decision came in Kaduna on Monday.
Zakzaky is expected to receive medical attention at a hospital in New Delhi, alongside his wife Malama Zeenat Ibrahim who is also imprisoned.
The Shia cleric will be... Еще accompanied by state officials during his trip.
Zakzaky has reportedly suffered two minor strokes and is losing his sight.
He has been in detention since 2015, following huge protests in Zaria, during which at least 348 civilians, including Zakzaky's three sons, were reportedly killed by the Nigerian military.
