Minister of Women Affairs slumps at IDP camp

Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Alhassan, slumped on Monday, while speaking to women at the camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

According to TheCable, Alhassan had arrived in crutches to speak with the women about the alleged sexual abuse on girls and women in camps in the North-East.

As she spoke, she slumped.

She was given a bottle of coke to boost her blood sugar level, which her aides said doctors had identified as the cause of the frequent feeling of weakness she was experiencing.

Alhassan told journalists that President Muhammadu Buhari sent her to investigate the sexual abuse of females in the camps and donate relief materials to them.

She also told the IDPs that the Federal Government was making efforts to return them to their homes.

Before leaving Adamawa, Alhassan also paid a courtesy call on the governor of the state, Muhammadu Bindow.
