National Coordinator of Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), Olusegun Bamgbose has described the death of Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru as shocking and suspicious.

Bamgbose also said this is one death that must be thoroughly investigated and added that the sad news will certainly pose a serious setback to the fight against terror in Nigeria.

WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Ibrahim Attahiru, has died in a plane crash with some of his aides. Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, Nigerian Air Force Director of Information confirmed the mishap in a statement.

Speaking on the development, Bamgbose added, “The just reported death of the Chief of Army Staff this evening is very shocking and almost unbelievable.

“This is most unfortunate and disheartening. His death will certainly pose a serious setback to the fight against terror in Nigeria.

“It’s tantamount to a coup. This is one death that must be thoroughly investigated. His sudden death is highly suspicious.

“Only just recently we heard the news of the death of Abubakar Shekau and the next thing is the death of the Chief of Army Staff.

“There is certainly a nexus. The late Chief of Army Staff could have masterminded the death of Shekau, this possibly could be an act of revenge.

“This has clearly shown that the forces behind Boko Haram are very powerful. No one knows their next target. There is something fishing somewhere.

“His death is not natural. The security architecture of the nation must be overhauled as this is tantamount to a direct attack on the Presidency.

“Nigeria is in danger as this insecurity is taking a dangerous weapon trend.”

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
