Buhari Mourns Long-time Senior Friend, Gabriel Igboanugo

President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned Mr. Gabriel Igboanugo, 95, a man he fondly used to call ‘Daddy’ when he was General Officer Commanding (GOC) 3rd Armoured Division of the Nigerian Army, Jos, Plateau State.

According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, on Sunday, Pa Igboanugo was the Principal Education Officer at Command Secondary School, Jos, and Buhari had a close and amicable relationship with the then GOC.

Lady Margaret Igboanugo, in a private letter to the President wrote: “My husband, whom you used to fondly call ‘Daddy,’ passed away the way he lived; peacefully and in comfort, in his home in Ihiala, Anambra State. He will be buried there on Friday, November 27, 2020.”

Buhari commiserated with the Igboanugo family, urging them to take solace in the fact that their patriarch lived to a ripe old age, and touched the lives of countless number of people that came across his way.
