Confirming the governor’s state of health to Sunday Sun yesterday, the commissioner said he had undergone scanning without any fracture detected and that he was said to be in a stable condition. “The governor has done scanning and no fracture was seen.
Also, no internal bleeding was detected, but he has been experiencing minor headaches,” he said. Okorocha, who was on a road project inspection tour when his vehicle had a head-on collision with an oncoming car at Orlu-Owerri road about 3 p.m. on Friday, was first rushed to a nearby hospital before being flown abroad for further medical examination.
