The acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission, Prof Kemebradikumo Pondei, appeared to have passed out on Monday during an investigative hearing at the National Assembly.
Pondei collapsed where he was seated as members of the House Committee on NDDC grilled him.
The committee had grilled him for about 45 minutes before he became unresponsive.
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.

However, Nigerians on social media claim he faked it because he couldn’t answer the questions.

#When they were embezzling billions on Naira meant for the development of Niger Delta, they didn’t slump.
Now they are asking them to provide answers to why they stole the money, they are faking slumping/fainting.
1.3 billion stolen in the name of palliative #NDDCProbe

Our people have now normalised fainting when they are facing the National Assembly. This country needs an overhaul. #NDDCProbe
