Senator Ike Ekweremmadu, Former Deputy Senate President, has expressed shock and sadness over the Friday evening plane crash that claimed the lives of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 others.
His Excellency Senator Ekweremadu, described them as patriots who gave their best to their fatherland, adding that their death was a heavy loss to the nation.
“What a dark Friday it was for the entire nation. The late Lieutenant General Attahiru was a man of high professional pedigree and his experience, leadership qualities, and patriotism stood him out. This is, therefore, a grievous loss to the entire nation.
“My heart goes out to his family and the families of other deceased compatriots, the Nigerian Army, the armed forces, and the President and Commander-in-Chief, Muhammadu Buhari,” the lawmaker said.
He prayed God to grant the souls of the departed mercy and eternal repose, and equally called on the Federal Government to immortalize them as gallant soldiers and patriots, who served their fatherland till their last breaths.
