Fear has gripped the family and associates of the first civilian governor of Plateau State, Chief Solomon Lar, over the state of his health.
Rumours were rife on Monday that he had passed on.
However, the Executive Secretary of Solomon Lar Foundation, Mr. Major Adeyi, said that Lar was not dead, but was presently on life support.
He said, “Baba (Lar) is not dead, but the truth is that he is on life support. He was discharged from the hospital last week and even read his message to Nigerians on the occasion of Nigeria’s 53rd independence on online version of most newspapers. but two days later, he had a relapse and was rushed to the hospital. As I am talking to you now, he is on life support.”
Lar, who is also the pioneer chairman of the People’s Democratic Party has been undergoing medical treatment in a London hospital for the past one year.
His last message was on the 53rd independence anniversary of Nigeria and the last picture seen of him was with his wife in London.
