The re-elected All Progressives Congress Senator representing Borno Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Ahmed Zannah, is dead. Our correspondent learnt in Abuja on Saturday that the 60 year-old ranking senator, who would have been inaugurated along with 108 others in the 8th Senate, died after a brief illness in a yet to be confirmed hospital within Nigeria. Zannah is the fifth senator who had died in the 7th Senate.
