Godswill Akpabio’s wife Unoma slips into COMA during major surgery in Germany

These are not good times for a former governor of Akwa Ibom State and now senator of the federal republic of Nigeria, Godswill Akpabio, if this report by The Capital is anything to go by.

Akpabio's wife Unoma has a lot to be grateful for. Few days ago, she evaded the long, cold clasp of death when she slipped into coma after a major surgery in a German hospital.

We are not sure if it was a cosmetic surgery or something else as the time of filling this report. But it was a major one. Unoma, like most of her peer, was fooled by the glitter of mortal possessions. Had she died during the surgery, her riches and name would not prevent her exit to yonder. She's lucky.

Were it not for the merciful stroke of providence, Mrs Akpabio could be fatally incapacitated by now. And all the Dollars, Euro, Naira and Pound Sterling in the world would be insufficient to save her.

- Good thing is, she's said to be recovering.
