Suhaila Zakzaky, the daughter of El-Zakzaky, the leader of Islamic Movement of Nigeria. IMN, has on Wednesday disclosed that her father is suffering for lead and cadmium poisoning.
Speaking with BBC, Ms Zakzaky, highlighted on the latest development, revealing that she spoke with her father on Wednesday, and he was unhappy that armed police were outside his room and that he was not able to be treated by his preferred doctors.
She also said: “He told me that he no longer feel safe and might choose to leave India.
“I am really worried for my father, especially because of the lead and cadmium poisoning.
“His doctors say if he gets to a certain level his organs could start failing and that’s really scary because that means he could just die at any moment,” she narrated.
She noted that the poisoning in her father’s body may be as result of shrapnel in his body “from when he was shot in 2015 when the Nigerian army raided our home.
Suhaila also disclosed that her father earlier had an eye operation in Nigeria to remove a shrapnel lodged in one of his eyes but his sight had been declining ever since.
Also, it was gathered that El-Zakzaky had insisted that he wanted to be treated by those booked to treat him before he and his wife left Nigeria.
