EX-VP, Alex Ekwueme goes into Coma

 Former Vice-president of Nigeria, Dr Alex Ekwueme is currently fighting for his life at the intensive care unit of Memfys hospital for Neurosurgery in Trans-Ekulu, Enugu state.

It was learnt that Ekwueme collapsed around 2 a.m last Saturday at his residence in Enugu. According to an eyewitness, Ekwueme had tried to pick up something from a table when he suddenly collapsed.

“He was trying to get something from the table when he suddenly collapsed and immediately someone raised the alarm, we proceeded to revive him while cautious enough not to attract neighbours.

When it became obvious that he had lapsed into coma, we rushed him to a hospital (unnamed) in GRA (Government Reserved Area), but we were referred to Memphys Hospital by medical consultants who had critically examined his condition.

When there was no sign of improvement on Monday afternoon, we rallied round and informed the former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, who is like a son, and he has been making plans to fly him overseas,” the source who pleaded anonymity told Punch.

Governor of Enugu state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi reportedly broke down in tears on sighting the Ekwueme in the hospital.
