According to the source, “Apparently Alams has been battling ill health, some rumored he never recovered from complications of infections on his tummy tuck surgery he had in 2005 (he was arrested almost immediately after) but my sources say he had HBP issues and kidney problems.
“I understand he was in a Dubai hospital when news came to him that the UK had demanded his extradition again, he apparently hurried back home so as not to be in danger of the Dubai authorities handing him over to the UK like they did James Ibori.
