Nigeria: Wada's ADC Buried in Zaria

Zaria — The remains of ADC to Governor Ibrahim Idris Wada of Kogi State ASP Idris Mohammad have been laid to rest in Sabon Gari, Zaria on Saturday.

The body of Mohammad, who was involved in an auto crash along with the governor at Emi-Woro village on Ajaokuta-Lokoja road on Friday, were brought to Zaria on Saturday and buried same day.

Mohammed was an old boy of Alhudahuda College, Zaria where he obtained his Secondary School Certificate. He was at the Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic (Kaduna State Polytechnic), Zaria where he obtained a National Diploma before he was enlisted into Police Academy, Wudil for Cadet Inspector Course.

After his promotion to the rank of ASP, Mohammad was posted to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) where he worked with current Chairman of the Commission when the incumbent EFCC chairman was the commission's head of operation.

The late ADC, according to Daily Trust's finding, was deployed to work with the Kogi State governor as ADC about eight months ago.

His relative Mallam Usman Usman described the death of Mohammad as a great loss. He said the late ADC was quiet, humble and caring.

Mohammad, 42, left behind his wife, five children and aged mother, Hajiya Amina Mohammad.
