The source who does not want to be named disclosed that the monarch had been referred to Nassarawa specialist hospital for further medical attention.

As I am speaking with you now (around 2:55PM), the vehicle that is conveying the emir to Nassarawa hospital just left the premises of AKTH. The condition of the emir was critical as at the time they departed AKTH," the source said.
