Dead Borno deputy governor
President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed shock over the death, today, of the Deputy Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Zannah Umar Mustapha.
The deputy governor was said to have died in the early hours of today, Saturday, in Yola, Adamawa State, in his sleep. He was to represent Borno State Government at the convocation ceremony of Modibbo Adama University of Science and Technology, Yola.

A statement by the Secretary to the Borno State Government, Usman Jidda Shuwa, said that Mustapha was also scheduled to follow up on his earlier visit to Yola, in connection with the welfare of Borno State citizens internally displaced as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency.

In a condolence message to the immediate family of the late deputy governor, Governor Kashim Shettima and the people of Borno State, President Buhari said his death saddened him.
He recalled the patriotism shown by late Alhaji Zannah who died even as he was on an official assignment in Yola, Adamawa State.
President Buhari joins Governor Shettima, members of Alhaji Zannah’s family, his friends, political associates, and colleagues in the Borno State Government, constituents and supporters in praying that Almighty Allah will receive his soul and grant him eternal rest.
