Dr Abdullahi Ibrahim, the Medical Director of the Hospital, said that the consultant was electrocuted while attempting to change-over power source at his residence.

The deceased, 43, left behind one wife and three children.

Ibrahim described the deceased as hard working and trustworthy, who committed his life to the progress of the centre.

He said Gayi’s death had created a vacuum that could be difficult to fill considering the dearth of specialists in his field of specialisation.

The deceased was buried in Birnin Kebbi, according to Islamic injunctions.
