President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family members, the government and people of Katsina State over the death of his classmate and former Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Coomassie.
The former IGP who was also the Chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum, (ACF) died on Thursday, in Katsina.
President Buhari in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, described Coomassie’s death as shocking.
“Nigeria will never forget the excellent leadership the late Coomassie gave to the Nigeria Police Force for the many years he served as IG.
“On behalf of the government and people of Nigeria, I pray to Allah to receive his soul and the family he left behind, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he said.
He added that his thoughts are with late Ibrahim Coomassie’s family and those mourning the demise of the late community leader.
