The frontline politician and his wife, Mrs Ifunanya Kalu, had boarded a flight on Lufthansa Airline from Abuja to Wiesbaden, Germany on Monday.

Kalu, who had been suffering from an undisclosed and life-threatening ailment, upon arrival in Germany on Tuesday, was rushed in an ambulance to Helios Klinik, Wiesbaden.

The APC chieftain, who is asthmatic, has been in and out of the said hospital in the past few months.
According to Kalu’s wife, Ifunanya, who is with her husband in the German hospital, the former governor was admitted into the operating theatre for a major operation on Wednesday.

In a telephone conversation on Friday, Mrs Kalu, whose voice was quavering, lamented her husband’s health status.
“Although the surgery was successful, my husband will still have to be monitored closely by a medical team for at least four months in order to prevent complications.

“His condition is improving gradually.
