A member of House of Representatives, Mr. Mohammed Sani-Abdu, on Tuesday on the floor of the House, gave a chilling account of how late Senator Ali Wakili slumped, and died of suspected heart attack on Saturday at his Gwarimpa residence in Abuja.
Late Wakili was a retired Customs officer and represented Bauchi South in the Senate until his death.
At a special session for the deceased, Hon. Sani-Abdu, who is also from Bauchi, claimed Late Wakili’s widow gave him an insight into events leading up to the Senator’s death.
The lawmaker said the deceased was about leaving Abuja for Adamawa to attend the wedding of the daughter of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, and asked his wife to prepare a meal for him to eat when he breathed his last.
His word, “This is why we have to continue to appreciate our wives. His wife received the first shock.
“She prepared porridge and brought it for him to eat. But Wakili told her he wanted something light instead, like tea.
“She went back to get the tea, only for her to return and find her husband slumped on the floor.”
