The All Progressive Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Jigawa South West District, Tijjani Ibrahim, is dead.

He was reportedly on admission at an Abuja hospital from where he was flown to China for further treatment when his condition deteriorated.

Mr Ibrahim died barely three months after he won the APC senatorial ticket for his zone where he polled 361 votes. He was the lone contestant in the election.

The late Mr Ibrahim represented Dutse/Kiyawa federal constituency in the House of Representatives between 2011 to 2015.

In his condolence message, Governor Muhammad Badaru of Jigawa said he has lost a dependable ally.
