#NigeriaDecides: Pregnant Woman On Queue Slumps, Dies

Voters and electoral officials experienced grief in Zamfara State after a pregnant woman, Shamsiya Ibrahim, reportedly slumped and died on Saturday during the presidential and national assembly elections.

It was gathered that the patriotic citizen, heavily pregnant, slumped and died while waiting on the queue to vote for her preferred candidate at her polling unit in the Tsafe Area of Zamfara.

Reports said she was immediately rushed to Tsafe General Hospital after she collapsed on the queue but was confirmed dead by a resident doctor upon arrival.

Channels Television reports that Shamsiya travelled from the Kotorkoshi area of Bungudu Local Government to Tsafe town, a distance of about 50 kilometres, to exercise her civic responsibility.

However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security authorities are yet to make an official statement regarding the tragic development as of reporting time.
