A former Inspector General of the Nigeria Police, Gambo Jimeta, is dead.

It was learnt that Jimeta died on Thursday but the cause of his death could not be ascertained by press time.

However, the presidency confirmed his demise in a statement by presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu.

“President Muhammadu Buhari expresses sadness over the death of Muhammadu Gambo Jimeta, a one-time Inspector General of Police whose transition was announced Thursday evening,” Mr Shehu wrote.

“Conveying the condolences of his family and that of the government and people of Nigeria, the President describes the late crack police detective as “a man of great courage, intellect and a true Nigerian Statesman,” adding that “Today, Nigeria lost a great son. He lived for the nation and served with all his strength.”

“May Allah bless his soul and give fortitude to the bereaved family, the government and people of Adamawa State to bear this irreparable loss,” President Buhari prayed.

Mr Jimeta was appointed IGP in 1986 to succeed Etim Inyang. He was succeeded by Aliyu Attah in 1990.

Jimeta was the National Security Adviser to former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida.

The deceased was a vocal voice on national issues.
