FRCN employee slumps to death in her car

A staff of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, Precious FM, Lafia, Miss Fatima Garga, on Monday slumped and died inside her car in Nasarawa State.

Punch reports that Miss Garga (pictured) was a senior administrative staff, and was given a slot to perform this year’s pilgrimage to Jerusalem by the state government but slumped and died on Monday evening while processing her travel documents.

The paper gathered that the 36-year-old drove her car from the office on the day of the incident.

According to a source working with radio station who pleaded anonymity, “Garga parked her car and slumped on the steering. It was the continuous blaring of the horn from her car that drew our attention and we rushed out to see what the problem was.

“When we opened the door of her car and saw her in that state, we rushed her to Dalhatu Arah Specialist Hospital where she was confirmed dead.”

The General Manager, Precious FM, Alhaji Musa Abdullahi, described her death as a great loss to the station.

He said, “The deceased returned to Lafia on Sunday after the expiration of her one-month leave in preparation for the 2014 Jerusalem pilgrimage. Garga exchanged pleasantries with almost everybody in the office before she later collapsed on the way to do her documentation for the pilgrimage.

“We have lost one of the most dedicated employees of the station, but God knows better why he took her away, I pray to God she rests in peace.”

Also speaking on the incident, a colleague of late Garga, Mr. Salihu Alkali, stated that she was a jovial fellow.

He said, “It is the most shocking day of my life, we just finished chatting and later, I was called to be told about the unfortunate incident.

“She waved to everyone on her way out not knowing that was the last time we would see her.”
