Joseph, his son, told newsmen that he suffered a stroke and was rushed to the hospital for medical attention.
“Unfortunately, early this morning (Thursday), around 3.00am precisely, he breathed his last,” he said.
“His death comes as a rude shock to us as a family. We are going to miss his love and warm as a grandfather, father, brother, uncle and supporter.
“He was a general who had no biased mind as a detribalised Nigerian. He served this nation faithful and identified with all Nigerians and Africa as a continent.
“We and Nigerians are going to miss him having served humanity in this country and Africa as a whole.”
His remains have been deposited at the Airforce Hospital in Jos.
