The Borno State police command has commenced urgent investigation into the death of the state’s commissioner for Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement, Ibrahim Idriss Garba.
Governor Babagana Zulum’s spokesman, Isa Gusau confirmed this on Saturday.
The state commissioner of police was at the house at which Ibrahim died in Maiduguri on Saturday, the spokesperson added.
He said Governor Babagana Zulum received the news with intense shock and profound grief.
“The Governor mourns alongside the late commissioner’s family, other loved ones, friends, associates, and members of the state executive council,” Gusau said.
The late Garba was the Governor’s Special Adviser on Special Projects before he was elevated and appointed commissioner of RRR, at the commencement of Zulum’s ongoing second term.
“May Allah forgive the commissioner’s shortcomings and admit him into Aljanna,” Gusau said.
