There is an indication that injured Governor Danbaba Suntai of Taraba may be flown to Germany for what sources at the National Hospital in Abuja described as “intensive treatment.”

Saturday PUNCH gathered that an air ambulance chartered by Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State arrived early on Friday morning and left Yola for Abuja later in the day.

However, the governor’s aide de camp and other victims of the plane crash are being treated at the Federal Medical Centre in Yola. 

Suntai was flying to Yola before the aircraft conveying him, a Cessna 208 plane, crashed behind the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation depot in Yola at about 18 nautical miles to Yola Airport.

Nyako, who was visibly disturbed by the accident, is one of the closest governors to Suntai and has been at the bedside of the injured governor since the plane crash occurred.

Suntai, his ADC and four other people were onboard at the time of the incident.

It was said that the ill-fated aircraft, with the governor as the pilot, was approaching the airport  for landing, when it suddenly lost contact with the control tower.

It was leant that after losing contact with the radar, Suntai’s attempts to ascend was unsuccessful as the aircraft crash landed. All the passengers survived, though with varying degrees of injuries.

Hospital sources said the governor sustained an injury on his arm, head and abdomen. He was rushed into an ambulance provided by Nyako, to the German Medical Diagnostic Section of the Specialist Hospital, Yola. The other victims, including a white man, were taken to the FMC Yola.
