Nasarawa State has been thrown into mourning after the news of the death of the state’s immediate past governor, Alhaji Aliyu Akwe Doma.

The immediate past Governor of Nasarawa State, Aliyu Akwe-Doma, is dead. He was aged 78.

He died after a brief illness at a foreign hospital in Israel, a nephew, Ahmed Bako, said yesterday evening.

Investigation further revealed that his health condition was said to have worsened in the past one month before he was flown out of the country to Tel-Avivi where he finally gave up.

Former Nasarawa information commissioner, Mamman Alakayi, said in Lafia that Doma died in an Israeli hospital on Tuesday.

“I got a call from the late governor’s son, Umar, this evening, that Baba Doma died in an Israeli hospital at about 7:45 p.m. Nigerian time,” he said.

Also confirming the news to the death of the erstwhile governor, his son, Umar, said his father died in Tel-Avivi at about 8p.m yesterday.

His words: “My father died in Tel-Avivi, the capital of Israel at about 8pm in the evening.”

The late Aliyu governed Nasarawa State between 2007 to 2011 when he was defeated by incumbent Governor Umaru Al-Makura.

He was also a former deputy governor under the late former Governor Solomon Lar in the old Plateau State in 1983.
