The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has taken the former acting governor of Adamawa State, James Bala Ngilari, to the Federal Teaching Hospital, Gombe for medical treatment.

A source in the commission told our correspondent that Ngilari was taken to the hospital in an ambulance on Friday around 6pm after he complained of ill health.

Mr. Ngilari was detain at the Gombe zonal office of the commission on Thursday in connection with the ongoing investigation of N450 million campaign fund sent to Adamawa State from Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP) headquarters.

A source at the hospital said that the former acting governor was admitted at the emergency ward and was quickly attended by two medical doctors. 

It was learnt that the former governor had problems with blood pressure that had shot up yesterday after he was grilled by the anti-graft detectives.

The doctors battled to reduce the pressure to normal level, stabilise it and watch his response to the treatment so far given to him.

Mr. Ngilari had been complaining of health challenges especially his high blood pressure and pile. He could barely sit for a long time without complaining of pain, the source in the commission said.
