A statement signed by his SA Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani, dated Saturday July 16, said he died in Kaduna on Friday.
“It is a sad to receive news of the demise of former Military Administrator of Jigawa State, Brigadier General Ibrahim Aliyu (rtd).

He prayed for Almighty Allah to grant him Aljannah Firdaus.
