Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna’s Chief of Staff, Mohammed Dattijo, has revealed that Fati, the wife of the late Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, is alive.
Dattijo said this in a message on his official Twitter handle while debunking a claim that Attahiru’s wife was involved in the Friday plane crash that claimed the lives of 11 people, including the CoAS.
“It is incorrect; the wife is alive. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace,” he tweeted.
WUZUPNIGERIA had reported that a Nigerian Air Force aircraft conveying some top military officers crashed at the Kaduna International Airport.
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, described the deaths as ‘a mortal blow to our underbelly’.
The President regrets that the incident happened at a time men of the nation’s armed forces were poised to end the security challenges facing Nigeria.
Adesina quoted the President as consoling families of the deceased, the military, and Nigerians in general, describing them as “heroes who paid the ultimate price for peace and security in the land.”
The President, while praying that God receives the souls of the patriots, pledged that the departed would not die in vain.
