In a statement on Tuesday, secretary of the academic forum of the
movement, Abdullahi Musa, alleged that the federal government and some
“security operatives working for the US” were conniving to ensure that
the IMN leader would not be treated.
Musa said the management of Madenta Hospital, New Delhi, had been threatened not to admit him for treatment.
“Reports reaching us from the hospital indicate that the security
agents are colluding with foreign security agents believed to be working
for the American government.
“Even before the Sheikh arrived at the hospital, we gathered from a
competent source that officials of the American embassy in India
instructed management of the hospital not to admit the Sheikh for
“The source added that even as the doctors were enthusiastically
waiting to receive the Sheikh to save his life, the American secret
agents have threatened the hospital officials not to go ahead to treat
the Sheikh at the hospital,” the statement read.
The group, however, called on the international community and “people
of conscience” to prevail on the Nigerian government and its “western
masters”, to stop playing with El-Zakzaky’s life.
