Sani Bello, a House of Representatives member representing Mashi/Dvisi Federal Constituency on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, is dead. Bello died on Wednesday, February 15 morning. He was 51. Abubakar Adamu, an aide to the late lawmaker, said that he had been suffering from an unnamed illness for many months before he finally gave up the ghost.
Adamu said Bello’s illness turned worse weeks ago and he was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre in Kaduna but eventually died Wednesday morning. Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara confirmed the passing of the lawmaker in a statement in which he also mourned the late politician. Late Sani is the second lawmaker in the House of Representatives to die in office in a year. His death comes months after another lawmaker, Adewale Oluwatayo, representing Ifako-Ijaiye constituency in Lagos state died in Abuja.
