One of President Buhari’s bodyguards, Warrant Officer Lawal Mato, on Tuesday passed away, after struggling with diabetes for three years.

In a statement released by Presidential aide, Femi Adesina, President Buhari described the officer, who had been working with him for many years before he won the 2015 elections, as “very thorough, trustworthy and dependable soldier who carried out his duty with diligence and focus.’’

The President prayed that Allah will ease his passage to paradise and grant his family, government and people of Jigawa State, the fortitude to bear the loss.

The deceased was part of a team that former President Umaru Musa Yar’adua restored to President Buhari as personal security and he had been off full duty for three years, treating diabetes.
