Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has reacted to the death of a student of the Nasarawa State University, Yusuf Mubarak, who had been declared missing.
Mubarak, who was declared missing after being last seen on Wednesday, September 13, was found dead on Saturday.
According to reports, Mubarak was said to have been last seen around the Federal Secretariat area, Federal Road, Ilorin, Kwara State around 9:40 pm on Wednesday.
The deceased, aged 27, since then, had been unreachable and subsequently declared missing on Friday.
Fliers were also made in a bid to search for him, but sadly, he was found dead, according to a journalist, Saeed Tijjani, on Saturday.
Tijjani’s announcement read, “Distinguished Friends and Lovers of Yusuf Mubaraq Authority, we regret to announce and confirm the unfortunate death of our brother who was declared missing yesterday.
“May Allah accept his return unto Him, forgive his sins, reward him with Janah, and abide with all that he left behind.”
Taking to his official X handle on Sunday, Saraki said he was devastated to learn of Mubarak’s death.
According to him, the life of another promising young person has been cut short by the “mindless violence perpetrated by nefarious individuals.”
He said everyone must never become “desensitized to the pain of the human tolls of insecurity.”
Saraki added, “Such losses must continue to serve as a constant reminder that we have to urgently address the security challenges in our state, Kwara, and across the nation. We must do everything to protect our young people.
“As we mourn Yusuf’s passing, it is my deepest prayer that his family and loved ones find all the comfort that they need at this difficult time — and may our authorities be empowered to comprehensively investigate this case and bring the perpetrators to justice.”
