It will be a tragedy of monumental proportion if Ibrahim El-Zakzaky goes blind- Shiites group warns FG

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) also known as Shi’ites yesterday released a statement asking the Federal government to arraign their leader, Ibrahim Zakzaky, who has been in their custody since December last year following the clash the group members had with the Nigerian Army in Zaria, Kaduna state. The group in the statement released said should their leader go blind, “it will be a tragedy of monumental proportion".
The statement signed by the group's spokesperson, Ibrahim Musa, reads in part

“We demand that our leader and his wife be released unconditionally without delay. It will be a tragedy of monumental proportions should our leader go blind in detention or suffer further physical disability due to him being denied access to adequate medical attention. 
We understand those that sanctioned his detention and those detaining him want to humiliate him and make sure that he goes completely blind before he is eventually released, thereby rendering him powerless the moment he is released from unconstitutional and illegal detention. The health of our leader and the wife continues to deteriorate on a daily basis and those holding him in custody are playing politics with his detention and that of his wife. 
We urge the Nigerian people and the international community to intervene in this crude violation of the fundamental rights of our leader.”
