Lawyer of Ibrahim El-Zazaky and his wife, Zeeenat, Femi Falana (SAN), has revealed his clients have pellets of bullets in their bodies, which is responsible for the high level of lead poison in their blood.
He said this on Monday while he was adressing the newsmen after the Kaduna State High Court adjourned the ruling in the application filed by El-Zazaky to travel for medical attention.
“El-Zazaky and wife Zeenat- are in dire need of medical attention as the Nigeria’s government had refused to give them adequate medical care since their detention in 2015.
“They have pellets of bullets lodging in their bodies which is responsible for lead poisoning of their blood.”
El-Zakzaky, who is the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), had filed an application to allow him travel to India for medical attention, hinging his application on his ‘failing’ health.
