She was said to have slumped on the queue at her Kofar Gidan Hamisu Polling Unit in Funtua Local Government Area, Katsina. The 50-year-old, Yar’Baba Yusuf Babangida, was reportedly hypertensive.
Onlookers say she was standing in the queue, then suddenly slumped. A team of voters rushed together and carried her to the Funtua General Hospital where the doctors confirmed her dead.
This is a sad one. We ask that you all take adequate care even as you go about exercising your voting rights.
