In the last 10 years, it has become fashionable for…
Hajia Zainab Nyako, the wife of former governor of Adamawa state, Retired Vice Admiral Murtala Nyako has reportedly died.
A social media post monitored by us and written by a political supporter of the former governor, Mustapha Atiku Ribadu reads:
“The Black cap revolution movement thrown into mourning, we lost a mother, a true lover, and the wife of our Oga pata pata, Haj Zainab Nyako.
“She gave up at FMC YOLA this evening.”
Hajia Zainab was reputed as a key political mobiliser for her husband in Adamawa state and was one of 4 wives, of Vice Admiral Murtala Nyako (Rtd).
Others wives include, Justice Binta Nyako, Dr Halima Nyako and Hajia Asmau Nana Nyako. All four were recognised as first ladies of Adamawa state while their husband was governor to the consternation of some observers.
We are still expecting formal confirmation or denial from the family.
