BREAKING: Acting NDDC MD, Pondei slumps during House of Reps probe

By Ovasa Ogaga,

The embattled Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Prof Kemebradikumo Pondei, on Monday, slumped momentarily during an investigative hearing by the House of Representative at the National Assembly.

Pondei collapsed where he was seated as members of the House Committee on NDDC grilled him, over an alleged corruption scandal in the NDDC, where the IMC board allegedly spent over N81b in 5 months without due process.

The committee had grilled him for about 45 minutes before he passed out.

Pondei has been rushed out of the Conference Room 231, venue of the investigative hearing on illegal spending and mismanagement of funds in the commission.

The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, however, stayed behind.

Members of the committee are still debating whether to suspend the hearing or not and has adjoined for 30 minutes.
