Kano — Former Senator Representing Yobe North, Senator Usman Albishir is dead.
Albishir died this morning in a ghastly motor accident which occurred within Kura local government area along Kano-Zaria expressway.
"He died as a result of injuries he sustained in many parts of his body. His police guard equally sustained injuries," a source close to the late Senator said.
Senator Albishir was in the Senate in 1999 and 2007 representing Yobe North constituency of Yobe State under the APP.
He contested for the Yobe governorship in 2007 under the ANPP, won the primaries but was replaced by the late Mamman Ali. Albashir decamped to the PDP in the build up to the 2011 election but lost to Ibrahim Gaidam.
His remains have been taken to his residence in Bompai, Kano, where funeral arrangements are already being made.
