The Speaker of the Niger State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Abdulmalik Muhammed Sarkin Daji, has described the demise of his late security aide, Inspector Isiyaku Mohammed of the Nigeria Police Police, as shocking and unfortunate.
The Speaker, in a statement in Minna on Friday, said until his death, Isiyaku was one of the best and most disciplined officers with a high sense of professionalism.
“The death of the officer is a personal loss to me and my immediate family.
“His dedication to duty, loyalty and sense of responsibility was the hallmark of his career as a professional police officer,” he lamented.
He explained that the death of the officer came when his contribution to the Nigerian Police Force and the country in general was highly needed, especially in the wake of the rising security challenges in the country.
The Speaker also stated that the deceased distinguished himself throughout his career, stressing that his services will not only be missed by the Niger State House of Assembly Security Department, the Niger State Police Command but the entire Nigeria Police Force.
He prayed that “the Almighty Allah (SWT) grant his soul eternal rest and give the family the fortitude to bear the great loss.”
The late Inspector died at an Abuja private hospital after a brief illness on Thursday night.
He was among the security aides who accompanied the speaker to an official engagement in Abuja but took ill shortly after arrival and was immediately rushed to a private hospital, where he died.
