In Gombe State, tragedy struck when one of the state’s sons, Major Auwal Danbabu Mohammed, his wife, Fadila Auwalu Shehu Brema, and only daughter, Aisha, were killed in a horrifying vehicle accident.
The state governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, termed the tragic news as “very terrible” and “a big loss to the state and its people.”
The mishap is alleged to have happened while the family was returning to base after the Sallah celebrations along the bustling Zamfara-Kano Road.
Major Auwal Danbabu was the Staff Officer of the Nigerian Army’s 1 Brigade in Gusau, Zamfara state, until his death.
On Friday, Inuwa Yahaya led a group to Alhaji Shehu Brema’s family’s Kumbiya- Kumbiya residence, where he consoled them over the unfortunate loss of their loved ones.
He bemoaned the fact that the death of a loved one is always an inexplicable tragedy, which is exacerbated when the death occurs at a young age.
“The death of young people in their prime is usually a moment of sadness for anybody, especially for family members, friends, and associates,” the Governor remarked.
“We share your pain, and on behalf of the Government and people of Gombe, we express our condolences to you, and we pray that Almighty Allah would grant us all fortitude and grant them Aljannat Firdaus,” the Governor said.
According to a statement by Ismaila Uba Misilli, Director-General, Government House, Gombe, the Governor was accompanied on the condolence visit by his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Abubakar Inuwa Kari, the Head of Civil Service, Alhaji Bappayo Yahaya, Commissioners, Advisers, and other aides.
