Eye9ja understands that the operatives of the DSS arrested the leader of the Shiites and his wife, Zeenat upon their arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
El-Zakzaky and his wife arrived at the international airport in Abuja at 11:40am, Friday. They were arrested by the DSS shortly after their arrival when the Ethiopian Airlines flight conveying them touched down.
The DSS operatives arrived the airport with an ambulance used to whisked the leader of the Shiite group and his wife away through the presidential wing of the airport.
The arrest of El-Zakzaky, his wife, comes after some family members and security operatives had left the country on Monday but 48 hours after he landed in India, the cleric raised the alarm that he was being frustrated.
However, the federal government of Nigeria had refuted his claim, accusing the Shiite leader of violating the terms of the Kaduna high court which granted him medical leave.
