“We received with rude shock the news concerning the death of Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Ibrahim Attahiru.
“It is indeed sad and shocking that he died in such a manner in less than 6 months he was appointed as Army Chief. We joined all Nigerians, the Nigerian Army, and his immediate family to mourn his demise.
“However, we call for a private investigation into his death to be sure that something is not wrong somewhere. This should not just be wished away as an ordinary air accident,” Okwu stated.
