UPDATE: NIGERIA / INDIA – Sheikh El-Zakzaky asks to return home after mistreatment and harassment at the hands of Nigerian and Indian security

15 August 2019, 18.00 (BST, UK / Abuja Time)

Sheikh El-Zakazky and Mallimah Zeenah have stated they will return to Nigeria rather than continue to be harassed and denied the medical care they require in India.  Video statements in Hausa and English have been released by the Sheikh and will be made available below.

The actions of the Indian authorities in facilitating the harassment of the couple at the hands of the Nigeria security services is extraordinary.  The restrictions placed on the couple seeing their own medical team, lawyers, advocates and even friends has meant that the couple have lost all faith in the process.

More news and action points will be released shortly.
