According to Vanguard newspaper, the Ekiti Lawmaker who has been in detention at the Department of State Services facilities was released Tuesday evening, March 22, 2016. and admitted at a private hospital in Abuja.
The lawmaker who was very weak and could barely speak when Vanguard visited him at the hospital kept repeating that “I am not well. I am sick. I am sick” when reporters sought to speak with him.
Hon Akanni Afolabi who is on admission in a private hospital in Abuja has been placed on intravenous feeding.
He said he was treated for malaria at the DSS detention facility after he collapsed two times.
He said his release may not be unconnected with his deteriorating health situation, adding that he was not told by his gaolers why he was held.
