There is currently pandemonium among friends of Benedicta Akpana, an aide to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River state who this afternoon collapsed in Abuja and was rushed to a private hospital in the FCT.
Akpana, an executive protocol officer to Ayade was said to have collapsed at her apartment at about 2.15pm and was rushed semi-unconscious to a private hospital in Zone 3 area of Abuja by her friend.
A doctor at the hospital informed The Guardian that Akpana was rushed to the hospital semi-unconscious. Upon examination, the doctor said her blood pressure is elevated at 190/115 mmHg.
He confirmed that Akpana’s blood glucose was normal but revealed that she may be suffering from a Transient Ischeamic Attack (TIA). The patient is currently undergoing emergency CT brain scan as at the time of this report.
Her friend who rushed her to the hospital informed The Guardian that Akpana has been stressed and depressed for some time.
The two-time beauty Queen who represented Nigeria and Africa between 2014 and 2015 is said to have been withdrawn to herself lately before the incident.
