The Lokoja Local Government Council Chairman, Muhammed Danasabe Muhammed, has died.
Reports say he slumped at his residence and was taken to a hospital in Lokoja immediately where he was pronounced dead at 5:30am, Friday, less than 24 hours to Council elections.
He died barely 24 hours before the Saturday governorship election.
He was said to have been active and spoke at a series of political meetings in preparation for Saturday’s governorship election, including the Friday APC stakeholders meeting that lasted to the early hours of Friday.
“Doctors confirmed him clinically dead around 5:30 am on Friday”, said a family member who pleaded anonymity.
The deceased who is from ward B in the cantonment area of Lokoja will be buried at the Unguwan Kura Muslim cemetery after 2 pm Juma’at prayer on Friday.
