Woman slumps and dies in Niger State Governor's office

Commotion erupted at the office of the Niger state governor, Babangida Aliyu on Monday when a 46-year-old woman, identified as Belkisu Mahmoud suddenly slumped and died under controversial circumstances.

It was gathered that the deceased, Hajiya Mahmoud, mother of three children had waited for several hours to see the governor but was denied access to see him. 

The governor was said to be indisposed as he had a lot of files to treat due to the New Year break. But shortly after she was allowed to see the governor, she slumped in his office.

Source in the governor’s office who spoke in confidence said the woman who was suspected to be asthmatic was immediately rushed to the Minna General Hospital where a doctor confirmed her dead.

The woman who was on a private visit to the office was delayed in the waiting hall because her name was not on the approved protocol list of those to see the governor

It seems she was a former staff officer (SO) in the Deputy Governor’s office.

Doctors at the Minna General Hospital kept sealed lips and refused to comment on the unfortunate incident.
