Taraba Speaker, Haruna Tsokwa slumps and dies

Taraba Speaker, Haruna Tsokwa

Tragedy enveloped Jalingo, the Taraba State capital in the early hours of today, when the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, slumped at his house and was confirmed dead when rushed to the hospital.

The late Speaker was one of the lawmakers in Taraba State who opposed Governor Danbaba Suntai's resumption of work in the state after his foreign medical treatment because of his frail state of health.

Before his untimely death, Tsokwa had come under attack by unknown gunmen on his way out of Taraba State. One of his aides was killed in the attack even though Tsokwa escaped unhurt.

Tsokwa is said to have been down with some heart-related ailments, which eventually claimed his life at the peak of his political career. May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
