President Muhammadu Buhari of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has commiserated with the family, government, and the whole people of Katsina State over the demise of his classmate and former Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Coomassie.
This is contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Thursday, shortly after his death.
President Buhari said he received the news of the death of the Chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF with shock and deep sense of loss.
The statement quoted the president saying: “Nigeria will never forget the excellent leadership the late Coomassie gave to the Nigeria Police Force during the many years he served as IG.”
He said his thoughts were with late Ibrahim Coomassie’s family and those mourning the demise of the late community leader and a fine gentleman.
“On behalf of the government and people of Nigeria, I pray to Allah to receive his soul and grant the family he left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he said.
