Former Vice-President, Abubakar Atiku; a former Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako and a former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, were among various personalities who converged on Katsina on Sunday for the third day Fidau prayers for the late Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Coomassie, who died on Thursday and was buried the following day.

While Abubakar came in company with Daniel, who is now the Director General of his campaign, Nyako came in company with a former Head of Service, Yayale Ahmed.

They, along with other personalities, were at the GRA residence of the late police boss.

A five-man team representing the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu, were also at the residence. They were led by Oloye Adesoji Obanikoro.

The Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima; Chairman of Police Service Commission, Musiliu Smith; a former chief of Army staff, Lt. General Luther Agwai, as well as businessman and founder of Al Iqma University, Kwara state, Alhaji Raheem Oladimeji, were also in attendance.

They all described the late police chief in flowery terms and prayed to God to grant him Aljanat Fridaus (Paradise).

“Rest in peace. Your death was a great loss to the nation and me,” one of the representatives of the Oba of Lagos wrote in the condolence register on behalf of the royal father

The GRA residence of the late police boss was still playing host to guests from across Nigeria by the time of filing this report.
