Kogi Governor’s Broken Leg Fixed – Doctor

The Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada, who survived a road accident on Friday with a broken thigh bone, is responding to treatment in an Abuja hospital, his doctor has said.


Felix Ogedegbe, the Medical Director of Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, where Mr. Wada is receiving treatment, said the governor’s fractured thigh bone, femur, has been fixed. Mr. Ogedegbe, an Orthopaedic Surgeon, said on Saturday, while addressing journalists that the Kogi governor did not suffer any life threatening injuries and may not be referred to a hospital abroad.
