Alhassan's aides utilised their wrappers, buckets and dustbin covers to fan the ailing minister and ensure that she was okay, Information Nigeria reports.

Following her recovery, Alhassan is said to have addressed women at the camp, explaining that she was on a fact-finding mission in the North-East and that she was in the area to investigate allegations of abuse occurring in IDP camps in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe.
