Former Head of State in the NPRC regime, Capt. Valentine Strasser is on life support machine at the private Aspen Hospital after he fell into a coma, according to close relatives.

He was moved from 34 Military Hospital to the private Aspen Hospital at Brookfields in Freetown.

He was first hospitalized at 34 Military Hospital Wilberforce for about three weeks but his condition continued to deteriorate and family members and friends got worried when he slipped into coma.

Reports say there was a decision for Strasser to be transferred to a private hospital with good medical facilities, but he decided to stay at 34 Military Hospital because, as a former soldier, he said he felt more comfortable being admitted at the military hospital.

President Julius Maada Bio is reportedly behind efforts to provide medical assistance and treatment to his former boss Captain (Rtd) Valentine Strasser.

Valentine Strasser was last seen publicly during President Bio’s inauguration last year, when the President publicly allowed his former boss to sit close to him at the Siaka Stevens Stadium.
