Former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Ishaiya Bamaiyi, appears to be facing a life-and-death battle at the Kirikiri Prisons, going by doctorsí confirmation that he has been incapacitated by a deadly sickness that could blind and paralyse him.

Reports say Bamaiyi, who is spending his seventh year in detention, had collapsed twice inside the Kirikiri Maximum Prisons and was rushed to the Creek Hospital, Ikoyi, Lagos, where he stayed for over one week before an order came for his return to prison.

Sources at the hospital told Daily Sun that the General, who is standing trial for the attempted murder of The Guardian publisher, Chief Alex Ibru, was admitted on January 20, into the VIP Ward 3 where he stayed till February 2.

Doctors at the hospital were said to have diagnosed a serious diabetic condition and hypertension. They were also said to have pronounced a dangerously low blood sugar level.

Daily Sun gathered that Bamaiyi was attended to by a military doctor simply identified as Col. Opouta. Anxieties were said to be mounting over the Generalís condition since he was returned to prison, where he is allegedly not getting adequate medical attention.

A visit to the Kirikiri Prisons revealed that the authorities have reduced the categories of visitors to Bamaiyi to only members of his family. Some members of the family, who came in a Peugeot 505 Evolution car, marked Kebbi, XC 447 ABN, were sighted outside the Kirikiri maximum prison last Saturday.
