Premium Times is reporting that the Chief of Staff to Governor Mohammed Jibrilla of Adamawa State, Abdulrahman Jimeta, has died.
Jimeta was said to have died in the early hours of Monday, June 18 in Saudi Arabia where he went on an holy pilgrimage.
According to the report, the sad news of Jimeta's death was confirmed by close associates of the politician.
"He died this morning in Saudi Arabia where he has gone to perform the leaser Hajj,” Premium Times quoted a Yola-based politician as saying.
The state government has yet to officially confirm the sad report.
Meanwhile, in an entirely different matter, NAIJ.com reported recently that some villagers reportedly blocked the Yola-Gombe road linking Adamawa and Gombe states on Thursday, June 14.
This was after troops reportedly killed one person in a raid on suspected drug dealer in Lafiya Lamurde village in Adamawa state.
A combined team of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) operatives and soldiers were said to have arrested a patent medicine owner in the village on Thursday.
According to a resident, tension engulfed the village when stray bullet reportedly killed a motorcyclist as soldiers fired several shots into the air indiscriminately.
