Tension heightened on Friday, May 3, 2019 as Yakubu Gowon, a former Nigerian Head of State slumped during the oration at the graveside of the late Major General David Akpodiete Ejoor in Ovwor-Olomu Community, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.

Military personnel made fruitless efforts to bar visual coverage of the scene of the incident, reports say.

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 tent to ensure that he recovered.
