Daughter reveals to the BBC


Recall he was shot at in year 2015. Daughter to Ibraheem Zakzaky says it may have been shrapnel or residue of the bullets left in the Shia Islamic leader of Nigeria IMN after he was diagnosed of possibly lead poisoning in the India Hospital he is at receiving medical attention althoug he complains of poor Standards in the India Hospital and also complaining police men were manning doors to his Health facility where he is lodged at in India.

According to BBC, El Zakzaky is suffering from lead and cadmium poisioning that may be from shrapnel in his body.

Ibraheem Zakzaky and hundreds of other people were arrested in 2015 after Nigerian Security forces stormed headquaters of Zakzaky's Islamic Movement in Nigeria IMN.

According to BBC, over 350 people were killed at the time.

Coming out from Custody since 2015 with permission to seek medical treatment in India, the Sheiks daughter Suhaila Zakzaky said the Poisioning may be as a result of Shrapel in his body "from when he was shot in 2015 when the Nigerian Security raided our home.

Suhaila Zakzaky further revealed her father had an eye operation In Nigeria to remove shrapnel lodged in one of his eyes but his sight had been declining ever since after the operation.

Talking to the BBC's Focus on Africa, ms Zakzaky said she was concerned about his condition :

"I am really worried.... especially because of the lead and cadmium poisioning. His doctors says if he gets to a certain level his organs could start failing and that is really scary because that means he could just die at any moment.".

Although a medical report had earlier been received by an Indian Shia group offering to pay all Zakzaky's Medical bills at Medanta Hospital in India, the Sheik is unhappy that armed police were outside his room and that he was not able to be treated by his own chosen Doctors.
