Sad: Nigerian Journalist, Tijjani Ado dies in the US Hours After Arriving for an Interview

A Nigerian popular journalist, Tijjani Ado Ahmad has slumped and died just hours after he arrived the United States to hear the stories of Nigerian students studying there.

Here’s want his friend wrote on Facebook;
Pray for Tijjani Ado Ahmad, a friend and professional colleague who slumped, died hours ago in America. As the presenter of Greeting from America (on Freedom Radio, Kano) he was invited by the US Embassy in Abuja to tour America and hear the stories of Nigerian students living there.

The last time we spoke was an invitation he extended to me to feature on a programme he co-anchored, Barka da Hantsi, whenever I was in Kano.

Tijjani was proficient in many beats and could get along with the most difficult newsmaker you knew. Two key assets journalists value are flair and contact. Tijjani had both!

Rest in peace, TJ.
