Taraba Speaker, Haruna Tsokwa, is dead
The Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Haruna Tsokwa, slumped in the early hours of this morning November 4th in his house and was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.
Tsokwa was attacked in September by unknown gunmen along the Akwanga-Keffi Road in Nasarawa State. The gunmen killed one of his aides but Tsokwa survived the attack.
Tsokwa is said to have been battling with some heart-related ailments before he suddenly slumped and died this morning. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
