The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has expressed shock over the death of Nigerian ambassador to Qatar, Abdullahi Bawa Wase.
Onyeama, in a statement by the Ministry’s Spokesperson, Dr Tope Elias-Fatile on Saturday in Abuja, prayed that God grant Wase’s family and the Nation the fortitude to bear the loss.

He hailed from Plateau State.
