Jailed Former Gov. Dariye Hospitalised For Kidney Ailment..

Former Plateau State Governor Joshua Dariye is down with kidney ailment....

Dariye is hospitalised at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada.

Dariye was sent to a 14-year jail term (later reduced to 10 years) by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court presided over by Justice Adebukola Banjoko on a 23-count charge of diverting and laundering of N1.126 billion Ecological Funds belonging to the Plateau State Government while in office as the governor.

The senator, who has been serving time in Kuje prison in Abuja, has been in the hospital since December 2018.

A government source who pleaded anonymity says Dariye needs prayers.

The source said: “I have gone to see him. He is having serious health challenges. From my finding and from the doctor, his aliment is kidney failure and it is critical.”

The Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS), FCT Command Public Relations Officer (PRO), Chukwuedo Humphrey, confirmed that Dariye is hospitalized, but he declined to state his ailment.

He said the Service had been managing his illness since last October.

Humphrey said: “I will not mention the name of the illness to you and the hospital where he is. Normally people whose health we can’t manage we refer outside for proper medical attention. We have been managing his illness since October/November.”

Asked when Dariye will be discharged, the NPS spokesman said: “It is the doctor who knows when he can be discharged. We have now limited the number of people visiting him at the hospital. We are just allowing his wife, close family and friends, and law enforcement personnel. Tight security is around him just as if he is in the prison cell.”

“His wife is always allowed around him. And she is always full of praises to the NPS for the proper medical attention. And his court hearings are ongoing, he does not need to appear in court. His lawyers are there to defend him.
Because of his health challenge, he opted for self-feeding. Because we cannot be cooking any special food for him. His family brings food for him.”

The NPS has written to the hospital on when Dariye can be discharged and they replied that Dariye is still undergoing series of checks and until they are through with the process and satisfied that he is fit before they can reply the NPS.”

It was also revealed that family members are worried about the Dariye’s condition.

From the nation


  1. Refer outside for what? All these people that develop, fake, or reveal illnesses when it's time for them to answer case. Till now, Diezani hasn't come back. E remain to beg her to return to Nigeria, face her case, and return the money wey remain. Shebi if Dariye didn't steal, embezzle or misappropriate public funds, Plateau State would have had a decent hospital to treat kidney issues. He should be made to stay in Nigeria, please.

  2. God's healing locate him now and beyond..
    Get well soon Sir
