The Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Gordon Obua, who is being detained by the Operatives of the State Security Service, is now in a “stable condition” after falling ill on Sunday.
The alleged corrupt practices of the Immediate-past administration of President Jonathan is believed to be the reason behind his detention.
Obua had embarked on hunger strike to protest his detention by his employer, SSS.
According to his lawyer, Obua was denied access to his family members. He also claimed that Obua was also denied his medications for hypertension and diabetes.
Inside sources at the SSS said due to the hunger strike, Obua fainted on Monday, which led to wide speculations that he had died in detention.
The source, however, added that Obua was taken to the hospital and was treated and discharged on Monday, after which he was returned to SSS headquarters where he is being detained.
The SSS is yet to officially state reasons why Obua, who served as CSO to Jonathan from 2010 to 2015, is being detained.
