Member representing Garki/Babura federal Constituency of Jigawa State in the House of Representatives, Isa Dogonyaro, is dead.

Mohammed Bello El-Rufa’i, who is one of his colleagues, disclosed the death of the lawmaker on his Facebook wall Friday morning.

He wrote, “Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un. Earlier today, we lost a colleague in the House of Representatives, a brilliant parliamentarian and an overall good man. May Allah SWT forgive him and grant him Aljannatul Firdaus”.

The Deputy House Spokesperson, Phillip Agbese , confirmed the death to Daily Trust, saying he learnt about the death of the lawmaker through posts on social media and on WhatsApp groups of the House of Representatives.

“There are the usual Islamic prayers and tributes by colleagues on various platforms. There is no official communication to the House yet. The family has not communicated to the House.

“That is the tradition. It is when the family communicates through the Speaker that we will officially announce his death. I learnt that the funeral prayer is scheduled in Abuja this afternoon.”
