Information reaching iDONSABI indicates that tension heightened on Friday as former Nigerian Military Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd) slumped midway during the oration at the graveside of late Maj Gen David Akpodiete Ejoor in Ovwor-Olomu Community, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that the incident happened when military personnel fruitlessly made efforts to bar visual coverage of the ugly incident.
The former Head of State was promptly rushed by some top echelons of the military into the special tenth for emergency resuscitation just as Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa and former governor James Onanefe Ibori, former dashed into the tenth to ensure he recovers.
The military, as well as the Delta State ambulances, were immediately moved into the front of the tenth in case the former Head of State’s health deteriorates further.
After a moment of suspense, Chief James Onanefe Ibori and Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa were seen coming from the special tenth, an indication that the former Army General has recovered.
More to come.
