By Our Correspondent

The Advocate for Social Justice, a group concerned about the plight of Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has advised the President Muhammadu Buhari led government to  grant the leader of the IIslamic movement, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife, Malama Zeenatuddin Ibrahim  their travel documents. 

The group said the couple was discharged and acquitted by Kaduna State High Court and therefore,should be given their traveling documents to treat themselves of various ailments.

In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Segun Fanimo, the group said "even President Muhammadu Buhari took time off from duty to attend to his Health situation outside Nigeria. So there is no justification to deny the Shiite leader to go to any country to attend to his worsening Health condition."

The statement read: "As you are aware, It has been over six months since the leader of the Islamic Movement, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife were acquitted and discharged by Kaduna State High Court, after spending almost six years in illegal detention."

"Judge Gideon Kurada had, in his ruling delivered on July 30, 2021, upheld the no case submission by the council of the defendents Mr Femi Falana SAN.

The couple who were arrested since December 2015 had been languishing in DSS custody, before later being transferred to a Kaduna Correctional  facility, under in human and degrading  condition."

" Their medical situation was not good  in addition to their mismanaged life threatening gunshot injuries and numerous health complications that require serious intervention; as a result of which their health condition woefully deteriorated from bad to worse."

"Information available indicates that their Health condition is deteriorating as Sheikh could be seen limping and his wife, Malama Zeenatuddin Ibrahim confined to a wheelchair."

"We called on  President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Justice  of the Federation to release the Sheikh and his wife's  travel documents so that they can seek for medical attention abroad."

"Sheikh and his wife suffered enough already. They lost six of their children in less than two years and over a thousand of his followers were killed and buried in mass graves and hundred of his followers were killed during their daily Free Zakzaky protests in Abuja."

"For the good of the country and maintain the fresh air in the street of Abuja and some parts of the nation considering the security crisis ravaging the country, it is therefore good to allow the Shiite leader to go for medical attention.
