Shiite cleric returns to Nigeria after India medical rowShiite leader Ibrahim Zakzaky, who was granted permission to travel to India for medical care after years in detention, returned to Nigeria on Friday following a row over his treatment, his supporters said. Zakzaky, founder of the pro-Iranian Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), and his wife Zeenah Ibrahim were “whisked away by security agents” to avoid waiting media after touching down at the airport in the capital Abuja, group member Abdurrahman Abubakar told AFP. The cleric had been in custody in Nigeria along with his wife since December 2015 after they were arrested during violence in which the army killed some 350 of his followers and buried many in mass graves.
