Former Vice-President  Atiku Abubakar has lost his Private Secretary, Barr. Abdulahi Nyako.

Daily Trust understands that Nyako passed away in the early hours of Thursday.

It’s unclear what led to the death of the long-time associate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election.

Confirming the death of Nyako, Paul Ibe, Atiku’s spokesman, quoted him as saying, “Abdullahi was more than an aide, he was a family to me in every sense of the word. He served me with loyalty and diligence. He will be sorely missed.

“On behalf of my family, I wish to convey my deepest condolences to the Nyako family and pray that the Almighty Allah will comfort and strengthen them. May Allah forgive his sins and grant him Aljannah Firdaus. Ameen.”
