Two aides of Governor Danbaba Suntai, Tino Dangana and Joel Dan, Chief Security Officer (CSO)and Chief Detail (CD), who were flown to Germany for medical treatment arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja yesterday at about 4.30pm.

They were discharged from the hospital after they were confirmed fit and free to go home by the specialists at the German hospital.

According to the Taraba State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Emmanuel Bello, the aides were to board an Arik airline from Abuja enroute Yola to Jalingo.

It would be recalled that Gov. Suntai and his three aides, Dasat Iliya, Aide De Camp (ADC), CSO and CD, crashed in his private jet in Yola, the Adamawa State Capital on Thursday, 25th October 2012.

However, the condition of the third aide, Iliya, who was confirmed to be critically wounded from the accident, could not be ascertained at the time of going to press.

Earlier, Bello had informed LEADERSHIP that Suntai was in stable condition and would return to Nigeria as soon as he got a clean bill of health from the German hospital.
