On Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari fondly mourned his friend, Gabriel Igboanugo who has passed away.
In a statement Buhari’s aide, Femi Adesina, released on Sunday, the president also sent his condolences to the family of the deceased.
The paths of the president and the late Gabriel crossed when Buhari was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3rd Armoured Division of the Nigerian Army, Jos, Plateau State.
The statement said “Lady Margaret Igboanugo, in a private letter to President Buhari, writes: ‘My husband, whom you used to fondly call ‘Daddy,’ passed away the way he lived; peacefully and in comfort, in his home in Ihiala, Anambra State. He will be buried there on Friday, November 27, 2020.”
“Pa Igboanugo was the Principal Education Officer at the Command Secondary School, Jos, and had a close and amicable relationship with the then GOC,” the statement said.
