Nigerian senator, Shehu Sani, on Wednesday said he was not able to immediately say whether his hospitalised colleague, Dino Melaye, was “stable or not”, hours after visiting him in hospital.
Mr Sani, from Kaduna Central, was among the dozens of senators who stormed the National Hospital in Abuja to ascertain Mr Melaye’s health on Wednesday afternoon.
“He was not on handcuffs but on drips,” Mr Sani said in a Facebook update. “He was barely able to speak and his neck was bandaged. I’m not a medical Doctor or a Nurse to conclude whether that means ‘stable or not’.”
“That is the truth,” he added.
