Galadima slumped in the middle of the exercise that the state governor, Simon Lalong, allegedly made compulsory for all members of his exco every fortnight.

It was said that the 64-year-old went into coma after he slumped and was rushed to Plateau Specialist Hospital where efforts to revive him were abortive.

The deceased is the third member of Lalong’s appointees to die in the last two months.

Confirming Galadima’s death, Secretary to the State Government, Rufus Bature, in a statement yesterday, described it as a huge loss.

He said: “Governor Simon Lalong, on behalf of the government and people of Plateau State, announce the sudden death of Samuel Galadima, Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, who died this morning (yesterday). He was 64.

“The late Galadima was part of the state executive council members participating in the regular exercise at the Jos Township Stadium, when he slumped. He was rushed to Plateau State Specialists Hospital, where he was confirmed dead.

“The governor has, therefore, declared a three-day mourning, beginning from today (yesterday) till tomorrow.

“The governor has also suspended all his public functions in keeping with the mourning. Everyone is enjoined to share in the burden of this loss, and pray for the family and state to have the fortitude to bear this loss.”
