One of Nigeria’s richest retired military generals, Theophilus Danjuma, was flown out of Nigeria last week in an air ambulance, according to family sources.
SaharaReporters learnt that the retired military officer, who has served in various capacities in government and also in the oil industry, fell seriously ill and had to be flown out on an air ambulance.
One of the family sources said no member of the family was aware of the retired general's final destination for treatment, but added there were strong indications that he was flown to Germany.
SaharaReporters could not ascertain the health status of the general as his wife, Daisy Danjuma, could not be reached to confirm General Danjuma’s condition.
However, a close friend of Mrs. Danjuma said General Danjuma only had a slight Malaria for which he is receiving treatment in the UAE. The source claimed Danjuma is expected back in Nigeria on Tuesday.
