According to an eyewitness, she “just held her head and slumped suddenly while officials rushed her to the hospital immediately.”
According to reports, the minister, who is from Bauchi, has been in the state since Saturday for personal reasons.
An unnamed eyewitness stated that since the minister arrived at the ceremony venue, she has appeared withdrawn and has occasionally touched her head as the program progressed.
According to another eyewitness, Katagum sagged as she stood up to deliver her speech. “She just held her head and fell flat.” “Her aides and other officials stepped in quickly and rushed her to the hospital,” the source said.
