BREAKING: Former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon slumps in Delta State during ‘military salute’ at a graveside
Tension in Delta as Yakubu Gowon slumps during final military salute to Maj.Gen. Ejoor
There was panic in Ovwor-Olomu Community, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State after Gen. Yakubu Gowon, a former Nigerian Head of State slumped during the oration at the graveside of the late Maj.Gen.David Akpodiete Ejoor.
Military personnel, however, made fruitless 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 Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa and Chief James Onanefe Ibori, former Governor of the Delta State dashed into the tenth to ensure he recovers.
A military, as well as the Delta State ambulances, were immediately moved to 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.
