A clerk of one of the committees in the House of Representatives on Monday slumped and died at the National Assembly complex, Abuja.
Mohammed Shuaibu, who until his death was the clerk of the House Committee on Agricultural Production and Services, reportedly slumped at about 12.noon while walking on a staircase and was rushed to the National Assembly clinic.
It was at the clinic that he was confirmed dead by the doctors. His remains were taken to Zaria, Kaduna State, where he hailed from for burial.
According to the chairman of the committee, Rep Mohammed Tahir Monguno (APC, Borno), the clerk returned to Abuja from Zaria on Sunday ahead of a meeting of the committee.
He said it was before the meeting that they learnt about Shuaibu’s sudden collapse and subsequent demise.
Monguno said Shuaibu was a hard working person and was deployed to the committee about a year ago.
