Former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar has mourned the death of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru.

Atiku said Attahiru’s death was a rude shock to all Nigerians.

The former Vice President, who sympathised with President Muhammadu Buhari, described yesterday as a dark day for Nigeria.

In a series of tweets, Atiku wrote: “It is a dark day for the nation. The loss of COAS Major Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and others today sends a rude shock across Nigeria and our friends worldwide.

“I sympathise with the Commander-in-Chief and our armed forces on this sad development. May the Attahiru family and other affected families be comforted, and their memories be a blessing.”

Recall that General Attahiru, who was among the Service Chiefs newly appointed by Buhari in January, died in an air crash on Friday.

The top military officer was aboard a military aircraft to an official trip in Kaduna.
