Doctors at a German clinic performed a surgical procedure on Patience Jonathan to remove uterine fibroids, Sahara Reporters learnt this from a presidency source. The source added that the fibroid might be cancerous, even though he could not confirm it as German doctors are reportedly conducting further tissue testing.
Another source also disclosed that President Goodluck Jonathan was planning a quick and secret trip to Germany to see his ailing wife. Mrs. Jonathan remains hospitalized in Germany almost eleven days after she was airlifted from Abuja early last week.
Sahara Reporters first broke the news that Mrs. Jonathan had been flown to a German hospital for medical treatment for “food poisoning”, a condition for which she was reportedly misdiagnosed by doctors at the Presidential clinic in Aso Rock.
