Chairman of the Kogi state Security Trust Fund, Siaka Oyibo, has died.

This was made known in a statement by the state commissioner of information, Kingsley Fanwo, on Thursday.

Oyibo, aged 69, reportedly died suddenly.

The statement reads, “A retired Army Officer, the late Hon. Oyibo was hugely instrumental to the security strides of the Governor Yahaya Bello Administration as the Chairman of the Security Trust Fund.

“As he bowed after fighting bravely against diabetes at the age of 69, he will be remembered for his patriotism, hardwork and commitment to the security agenda of the present administration in the state.

“He will be buried today according to Islamic rites. The late Hon. Oyibo is survived by a loving family. He will be sorely missed by his family, the people of Adavi Local Government Area and the entire people of Kogi State.

“May God give all he has left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
