Godfery Chikwere, an ex-media of Governor David Umahi, who was detained by the police following a petition by an Ebonyi State government official, slumped on Monday.
Mr Chikwere was subsequently rushed to the state’s police headquarters’ clinic for treatment but his condition reportedly worsened.
He was then taken to the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital Abakaliki(AE-FUTHA) for further treatment.
The former radio presenter was arrested few days ago by the police following a petition against him by the state government for making a publication on Facebook which the government considered as offensive.
Commissioner for information and orientation Uchenna Orji had written the petition dated October 8.
