The Speaker, Barrister Rasak Atunwa, announced during the plenary session that Sunaboro died yesterday following a brief illness.
Sunaboro, who represented Ilesha/Gwanara constituency of Baruten Local Government Area, was expected to present the report of his committee on the 2015 appropriation bill on Tuesday, but the exercise was deferred till yesterday.
 It was gathered that news of Sunaboro’s death broke shortly after lawmakers converged for the session.
The Speaker immediately ordered suspension of deliberations and adjourned to Tuesday next week to enable members attend the deceased’s funeral.
 Atunwa described late Sunaboro as a committed and diligent member, saying he contributed immensely to the House especially in the passage of the annual budget. He later led members to observe a minute’s silence in honour of their late colleague.
He said; “We received the death of Sunoboro Idris with sadness and shock because we gathered today to continue with the plenary but turned to mourn Sunaboro. He carried out his duties as chairman, Committee on Finance and Appropriation, with diligence. As chief examiner of the 2015 budget proposal presented to the House, he worked tirelessly to ensure timely passage. Unfortunately, he could not present the report on Tuesday.”
Late Sunaboro is the second lawmaker to die in the current Assembly. It would be recalled that the House in June last year lost a member, Haliru Mohammed of Kaiama/Wajibe/Kemanji constituency.
