Unlike media reports stating that Nigeria's Shia Spiritual Leader Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky losing his eyesight, his daughter Suhaila told al-Ahed news that although he has a developing glaucoma, the Sheikh can still barely see.
Nevertheless, although a doctor was allowed to see him in the place where he is imprisoned, Sheikh Zakzaky cannot receive proper treatment because none of the eye hospitals in the country conducts the possible treatment that was proposed by the doctor, his daughter added.
The Nigerian army attacked Islamic Movement in Nigeria [IMN] leader Sheikh Zakzaky's house and conducted what looked like a premeditated military assault. They burned the house to the ground with everyone in it.
The attacks lasted until December 14th and Sheikh Zakzaky who had already lost three sons to similar action, lost another three sons in the attacks.
Over two years later, Sheikh Zakzaky and his wife remain in detention.
