Former Nasarawa information commissioner, Mamman Alakayi, said in Lafia that Doma died in an Israeli hospital on Tuesday.
“I got a call from the late governor’s son, Umar, this evening, that Baba Doma died in an Israeli hospital at about 7:45 p.m. Nigerian time,” he said.
Alakayi said that the former governor had gone to the hospital to treat an undisclosed ailment three weeks ago.
“We are currently making arrangement for some family members to travel to Israel and convey the remains back home for burial,” he said.
Doma was the governor of Nasarawa State from 2007 to 2011, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.
He hailed from Doma Local Government Area of the state.
