Zakzaky, wife suffer life threatening injuries says IMN

26 July 2016, 19:31

Abuja - The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) on Monday said its leader, Ibraheem Zakzaky, and wife, Zeenatuddeen, currently in the custody of the Department of State Security, DSS, in Abuja, were suffering life-threatening injuries, Premium Times reports.

The Chairman of the Resource Forum of the sect, Abdullahi Danladi, raised the alarm while addressing journalists in Kaduna.

Danladi, a professor, said apart from the life-threatening gunshot injuries sustained by Zakzaky, his blood pressure was almost spiraling out of control and might result in death if not urgently attended to.

“There is also a complicated wound on his stomach which he sustained during his 1987 incarceration in Kirikiri,” Danladi said.

The Professor of Textile Technology at the Ahmadu Bello University said the sect leader’s wife also sustained life-threatening gunshot wound.

He said unless the bullet lodged in Zakzaky’s spinal cord is urgently removed, she might suffer paralysis according to Nation.

He, therefore, called on the authorities to give the Zakzaky's urgent medical attention in view of the apparent danger they were facing.

He called on the government to release them for treatment.

“The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) is deeply concerned about the health of our incarcerated leader and believes that it is in the interest of the Nigerian state, and those holding him, to release him unconditionally to enable him attend to his health.”
