Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has mourned the death of his bosom friend, former Inspector-General of Police, Muhammadu Gambo Jimeta, describing him as a super cop, patriotic Nigerian and a steward leader.
In a condolence statement issued by his Media Officer, Paul Abe, on Friday, Mr Atiku was nostalgic about the invaluable time he shared with the late former Presidential Adviser on Security Matters and a top-notch police detective.
“He was a friend of many decades; a value addition to society and unbiased commentator on local and global issues, who gave his all in service to his fatherland,” Mr Atiku said.
The Wazirin Adamawa commiserated with the Gambo Jimeta family, the Adamawa Emirate, the people of Adamawa State and Nigeria as a whole.
While urging his bereaved family and friends to be strong and resilient to live the dreams of this eminent patriarch and true nationalist, the former Vice President prays for the forgiveness of his sins and admittance of his soul by Allah.
