Nigerian Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, says that on Saturday said he “received with shock” the news of the death of Zannah Umar Mustapha, the Deputy Governor of Borno State according to new reports by Channels TV.

Saraki in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, in Abuja, said it was difficult to believe the information that Mustapha whom he met in Borno State about a week ago during his tour of some Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in Maiduguri could have left this world so soon.

See Saraki's touching words + full story after the jump:

The Senate President said:

When I met Umar Mustapha in Maiduguri, he was so full of life that it could not have crossed ones imagination that we were meeting for the last time. He came across to me as a complete gentleman who was doing all in his power to assist his principal, Governor Kashim Shettima not only to defeat insurgency in the zone, but to bring succour to the entire people of Borno State, especially those adversely affected by the insurgency.
It is a pity that today he is not going to witness the imminent end of the mindless bloodletting and destruction of property being visited on a peaceful and hospitable people in the north-east zone of the country. We can only take solace in the fact that he lived a good life and died in the service of his people. He was a complete gentleman and a devoted servant-leader. May Almighty Allah grant him a place among the righteous ones in Aljannah Firdaus.
Saraki also went ahead to commiserate with the family of the deceased, the Governor and people of Borno State, and also prayed to God to grant them the strength to bear the tragic incident.

The Senate President said: “Only the complete and total eradication of insurgency from every part of the north-east and other affected parts of the country can serve as a befitting tribute to this great Nigerian who has departed so soon.”

RIP once again to the late Zannah Mustapha
