Just In: Senator Nuhu Aliyu is dead

Senator Nuhu Aliyu, a former lawmaker representing Niger North, is dead.

Aliyu, a former Deputy Inspector-General of Police, died on Wednesday in Kaduna State following a brief illness.

Reacting to the news, the Niger State government described Aliyu as a great man of courage dedicated to Nigeria.

A statement by Alhaji Ahmed Ibrahim Matane, the Secretary to Niger State Government, said the state has lost a man of immeasurable value, adding that his advice would be greatly missed.

The statement read in part, “The patriotic tendencies and excellent handling of legislative duties concerning the welfare of people and the nation demonstrated by Senator Nuhu Aliyu are worthy of emulation.

“But we must take solace in the fact that from God we all come and to Him we shall all return. Nobody shall live longer than the time appointed by Almighty God.”

He was the first chairman of the PDP in Niger state before being elected into the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 1999 and was reelected to the same position in 2003 and 2007.

Born in 1941, the deceased studied Advanced Police Management at the Police College Jos and rose to become a Deputy Inspector General of Police.

He was in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department before he retired.
