Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has revealed there is still a full bullet lodged in his wife’s body that Nigerian doctors cant remove.
The cleric disclosed this during a press conference recently, in remembrance of the killing of some of his followers in 2016.
Sheikh El-Zakzaky said: “My wife has a full bullet lodged in her body which doctors have been unable to remove here. But experts from outside the country promise that they can do such.
“In addition to that, she has, for the past five years (since July 2016), been chair-bound. She can only walk using a wheelchair and she prays sitting in a chair.
“They know that she needs knee replacement which. But if they do knee replacement in this county, it may take the patient about three months before they could walk; but somewhere else, it may take less than a week. After three days, the patient could be able to walk.
“I have fragments of bullets scattered all over my body and they are secreting poison – lead, cadmium, and other poisons. And with the recommendation of doctors here, including government doctors, I need what they call ‘chelating therapy’ which will remove the poisons.
“But the fragments also have to be removed, which doctors here say they cannot remove because they are very tiny and moving around my body.
“But up to now, they (those in authority) have not allowed us to do that. Of course, after about two months, I had my first interview with Press TV through Skype with their headquarters in Tehran which was aired. And, of course, there have been so many press releases which our people have been releasing from time to time, giving you updates about the issues of our passports, our health and so on.”
