The Islamic Human Rights Commission has stepped into the alleged conspiracy between Nigeria and India to deny proper medical attention to the leader of the Shiites in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim el Zakzaky, and his wife, Zeenat.
His group, the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, had accused both nations of restricting the doctors at the Indian hospital where they were admitted from giving them adequate treatment.
This prompted online protests across the world.
In fact, the Shiites demanded their return to Nigeria due to what they described as their shameful treatment at the hospital.
It was learnt that the IHRC was behind the choice of an Indian hospital for their treatment.
It swiftly intervened in the imbroglio by sending an official to sort out issues.
An Indian associate of the Shiites leader, Zainab Mirzah, tweeted that the matter was being resolved.
She said: “Dear Brs/Sis
Sis Marzia Hashemi is speaking to the doctors at the hospital…
Plz calm down..
You will get updates v soon. .
plz do not fwd any msg.”
She had earlier directed enquiries on the issue to the organisation’s email.
