Yakubu Dogara, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has said he was ”hurt very deeply” by the death of Benjamin Idoko.

Idoko, who was a police sergeant, was leading the way for Dogara’s convoy on Wednesday when his motorcycle crashed into a vehicle, killing him instantly.

In a statement by Dogara’s spokeperson, Turaki Hassan, on Friday night, he said the speaker condoled with the family of the deceased.

The Speaker’s wife led a delegation of lawmakers’ wives to see the bereaved.

A burial committee constituted by the Speaker would meet on Saturday to review its task.
