Tension in Bayelsa as defected PDP chair slumps

Just three months to the December 5 governorship election in Bayelsa State, the defected former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Col. Sam Inokoba (rtd), reportedly slumped during a town hall meeting in Nembe.

ITRealms reports that this has caused tensions to rise with fear and apprehension gripped the leadership of the APC.

An eyewitness at the forum who pleaded anonymity said "something funny happened and you don't expect everything to be made public" that is making reference to the slumping of Inokoba.

The source at the event which has commenced by the time Inokoba suddenly collapsed and was rushed to a local hospital where he was said to be under intensive care as efforts were being made by medical personnel to stabilize his condition. 

The Timipre Sylva-led APC leadership in the state was said to be uncomfortable with the situation and tried to keep the incident away from the press.

But it soon became public knowledge when relatives and associates came to the hospital where Inokoba was being treated.

Reacting, the Ijaw Young Professionals called on Inokoba’s family and the general public to hold the APC  responsible should anything happened to the former PDP chairman.

Spokesman of IYP, Seighfa Tonye-Brown, in a statement in Yenagoa, berated the APC for attempting to hide the unfortunate incident.

According to him, the action of the APC leadership was suspicious and not in good faith.

He warned that should anything untoward happen to the Odi-born politician, the action of APC would be called to question.

Inokoba, who marked his 70th birthday in April, the statement claimed, had been in and out of hospital all through last year and till date.
