Danbaba Suntai pictured for the first time since he was admitted in a German hospital.
Ailing Governor of Taraba state, Danbaba Suntai, hospitalised in Germany for spinal cord related injuries, has been pictured with his wife and twin babies delivered a fortnight ago.
A picture obtained exclusively by PREMIUM TIMES from close family members shows the governors dressed in suits carrying one of the babies while his wife, Hauwa, lapped the other.
Hauwa was delivered of the twin babies on December 13 in a German hospital while minding her sick husband.
The picture shows the governor, who reports say has undergone spinal cord surgeries, sitting on a spinal base orthopaedic chair in a restaurant setting.
The governor appears to be looking into the camera, but seems ill and not yet in full control of his body as his shoulders were sunken in his suits.
The governor had a crash in his own private jet, a Cessna 208, that had five other passengers on board, in October 2012 while approaching the Yola International Airport.
After initially receiving treatment in Nigerian hospitals, he was airlifted to Germany with an air ambulance where he has been receiving medical treatment.
