Ekiti Lawmaker Hospitalized After Release From DSS Custody


Ekiti Lawmaker, Afolabi Akanni, who has been in detention at the Department of State Services facilities since March 4, was released Tuesday evening.

According to Vanguard, Akanni has now been admitted at a private hospital in Abuja.

The lawmaker is being investigated by the DSS over an alleged forgery during the Peoples Democratic Party’s House of Representatives primaries held in Ekiti North Federal Constituency II and an alleged assault on Justice John Adeyeye of the State High Court.

He told reporters that he was released after he collapsed twice in detention.

“I am not well. I am sick. I am sick,” he told Vanguard when reporters of the newspaper visited him at the hospital.
