Following immense public pressure from the media and civil society, the three aides of the Taraba governor, Danbaba Suntai, whose were also victims of last Thursday’s air crash have also been flown to Germany for treatment.
It will be recalled that the governor was transferred from the National Hospital to a German hospital two days ago. The transfer of his aides was confirmed by the Taraba information commissioner, Emmanuel Bello.
The three aides are are Dasat Iliya, the Aide de Camp, ADC; Timo Dangana, Chief Security Officer, CSO, to the governor; and Joel Dan, Chief Detail.
According to the state, the movement to Germany was simply to take all necessary precautions.
“The three aides are in the National Hospital and are all showing great signs of improvement,” Bello said. “In fact, one of them was even walking around and others were talking with family members.
”They are in very, very stable condition. There were only four persons in the plane and there were three aides and they are all doing fine.”
“The governor is fine and all the reports we are getting show that he is doing fine. It is only that we were not taking chances and that is why he was moved to Germany. It is the same for all the other aides. They were moved to Germany as well. There is no preferential treatment as some were trying to insinuate.”
