The leader of the proscribed Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh
Ibrahim El-Zakzaky and his wife  Zeenat might breathe the air of freedom
very soon as the Department of State Services (DSS), is already working
to ensure his release from detention.

Naija News had earlier
reported today that Justice Darius Khobo of Kaduna state High Court gave
El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat leave to travel to India for medical
attention. He, however, added that the trip will be under the
supervision of the state.

A statement signed by the DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya  and made available to Naija News reads:

“This
is to inform the public that the Department of State Services (DSS) has
received the order granting Ibrahim EL-ZAKZAKY leave to travel to India
for medical treatment. Consequently, the Service is liaising with
relevant stakeholders to ensure compliance. Conformity with the order is
in line with the Service’s avowed commitment to the Rule of Law
inherent in a democracy.”

Naija News reports Zakzaky had been in
custody since 2015 when he was arrested after he and his followers
blocked the convoy of the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai in Kaduna
State.
