Sheik Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, Leader of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), and his wife, Zeenat have left Nigeria on their way to receive medical treatment abroad.
The couple arrived Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, in the afternoon on Sunday for the journey.
TVC News had earlier reported that their passports and other travel documents were ready for the travel.
Justice Darius Khobo of Kaduna State High Court had, on Monday last week, granted Elzakzaky, leave to seek for medical attention in New Delhi, India. Khobo while granting the IMN leader the leave said he would travel in company of State officials. He said the IMN leader must return immediately after his discharge from the hospital to face his charges.
El-Zakzaky and his wife had applied to the court seeking to travel, following poor health while in detention.
