Nuhu Aliyu, a former senator representing Niger north, is dead.

Ahmed Matane, secretary to the Niger state government (SSG), said Aliyu died on Wednesday after a brief illness.

Mutane said Abubakar Bello, Niger governor, suspended the state’s weekly state executive council meeting in his honour.

“We must take solace in the fact that from God we all come and to Him we shall all return. Nobody shall live longer than the time appointed by Almighty God,” the SSG said in a statement.

“The patriotic tendencies and excellent handling of legislative duties concerning the welfare of people and the nation demonstrated by senator Nuhu Aliyu are worthy of emulation.”

Born in 1941, Aliyu rose through the ranks of the police force until he got to the position of deputy inspector-general of police.

He was in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) before he retired.

Aliyu was first elected into the senate in 1999 and was reelected in 2003 and 2007.
