The grandson of the Second Republic President Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari, Bello, who died yesterday aged 93 has given an insight into the last moment of the deceased.
Shagari died about 6.30pm on Friday at the National Hospital, Abuja, from age-related disease, Bello posted on his twitter handle.
The deceased’s driver, Bala, in his account said the former civilian president suffered from pneumonia for more than 10 days before he was flown to Abuja for medication when it appeared that his condition was deteriorating.
Bala, according to the report, had been working for the former president before he was elected as President in 1979.
In the wake of Shagari’s demise, a deluge of condolences is being offered to his bereaved family.
