The acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Kemebradikumo Pondei collapsed on Monday while testifying during a session of the House of representatives Committee probing the Commission.
The development caused confusion.
The Committee had grilled him for about 45 minutes before he passed out.
Pondei has been rushed out of the Conference Room 231, venue of the investigative hearing on illegal spending and mismanagement of funds in the Commission.
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, however, stayed behind.
