Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has said the death of Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Ibrahim Attahiru, who died alongside other top military officers in an air crash on Friday, would bring setback in the fight against insecurity in the country.

This was contained in a statement issued in Makurdi on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase.

According to the statement, the Governor said the death of Lt General Attahiru and the other military officers was shocking and quite painful.

He stated that the late Chief of Army Staff demonstrated commitment to tackling the wave of insecurity since his assumption of office earlier this year.

“Governor Ortom sympathises with President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigerian Army and the bereaved families.

“He prays that God grants the soul of Lieutenant General Attahiru as well as those of the other military officers eternal rest and their families the strength to bear the losses”, the statement added.

Saga Gist had reported that the Army Chief died in an air crash on Friday evening when a military Beachcraft 350 conveying him and other army officials crashed at the Kaduna International Airport.
