Engineer Nafiu, one of the sons of the former Commissioner for Education, Engr Musa Yeteti has died.

Nafiu who is a civil engineer died at around 11 am in Lagos after he was rushed to a private hospital following complaints of stomach ache.

His death comes 24 hours after he attended the wedding of his sister in Ilorin, where his father, a former loyalist of former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, announced his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The 28-year-old was buried immediately according to Islamic rites at the Muslim cemetery, Ilorin on Tuesday, March 22.

Speaking with Daily Trust, the bereaved father, who described the incident as painful, said it was the second death he would witness of his children.

According to him, “He left Ilorin on Sunday after the wedding to resume office Monday only for me to be called by his wife that he was restless in the morning.

“He drove himself to the hospital when he was feeling discomfort. It was when the wife got to the hospital that he met him in that state of restlessness. He was just 28 years old and recently gave birth to twins.

“I am pained but I have accepted Allah’s decree on this. This is the second of my sons that I would bury. But if this had happened before the wedding, it would have been a different story,” the father added.
