Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has commiserated with the Jimeta’s family over the death of the elder statesman and former IGP of the Nigerian Police Force, Muhammadu Jimeta.
In statement on Friday morning, Atiku said;
“I received with deep shock the loss of my bosom friend, ex-police boss Muhammadu Jimeta. He was a super cop, a patriot and a steward leader. He was a friend of many decades; and an unbiased commentator on local and global issues, who gave his all in service to his fatherland.
“On behalf of my family, I commiserate with the Gambo Jimeta family, the Adamawa Emirate, the people of Adamawa State and Nigeria as a whole. May Allah (SWT) forgive his sins and grant him Aljannah Firdaus.”
The late IGP served as IGP between 1986 and 1990, after which he was succeeded by Aliyu Atta.
He also served as National Security Adviser (NSA) to Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, and a representative of Adamawa State to the National Conference in 2014.
He was 83 years old at the time of his death.
