In a statement on Tuesday, the Academic Forum of the movement alleged that security agents, who accompanied El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, have ganged up with foreign security agents and threatened the hospital not to admit them 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,” the statement read partly.

“Earlier, even before the Sheikh arrived at the hospital, we gathered from [a] competent source that officials of [the] US Embassy in India instructed management of the hospital not to admit him there for treatment.”

It added: “We are calling on the international community and people of conscience and humanity, especially those that facilitated the trip of the Sheikh to India for treatment to prevail on the Nigerian Government and it’s allies to stop playing with the life of our leader.”
