The body of Alhaji Shehu Shagari, Nigeria’s Second Republic President has left the National Hospital Abuja for Sokoto and has been laid to rest.



Shagari died at the National Hospital Abuja on Friday after a brief illness.

The late ex-President’s grandson, Nuradeen Mahe disclosed that the late President was moved to the National Hospital, Abuja on December 25, when “his health worsened, but he later died after being attended to by medical experts.”

The former president ruled Nigeria between 1979 to 1983.

Shagari, who won his second term election was, however, overthrowned by a coup d’etat that brought in Muhammadu Buhari as Military Head of State.
