Taraba State Speaker Slumps And Dies.

The Speaker.
Tragedy enveloped Jalingo, the Taraba State capital in the early hours of Monday when the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, slumped and died.Tsokwa, who led the team of lawmakers opposed to the resumption of work by ailing Governor Danbaba Suntai despite his plea, is said to have slumped in his house and was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre. His corpse was later removed from the FMC Jalingo to Taraba Specialist Hospital. 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. The late speaker was being expected to lead a delegation of the state Christian community to the yearly pilgrimage in Israel, when he kicked the bucket. May his soul Rest in Perfect Peace. Amen.
