Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa is reportedly suffering from an unknown sickness, reports say.

Concerns for Okowa’s health were said to have been raised on Wednesday, October 5, after he reportedly slumped at the government house in Asaba.

“I can tell you categorically that since that Wednesday till today the governor has not attended any public function. If you watch well, all the public functions, it’s the deputy that is representing him. Though, we can't tell why he slumped and the illness he is suffering from,” a source told Sahara Reporters.

“Before becoming the state governor, he has been battling with unknown health challenges. Even when he was in the senate, he was with this unknown illness but some people close to him said what he is suffering from could not be far from some blood related illness," the source added.
