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.
