An official confirms the incident

Confirming the incident, Forum of Special Advisers Chairman Ibrahim Gusau said Maina was rescued and rushed to Usmanu Danfodiyo University Hospital, Sokoto for treatment.

He said:

“Even during the rally, we were together, not knowing that it would be our last meeting.”

Survived by three children and her elderly parents, Gusau prayed to God to forgive Maina’s shortcomings and grant her Jannat ul Firdaus.
