Nigeria's number one man, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has mourned the death of Etop Essien, the deputy comptroller of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in charge of revenue.

Essien died on Tuesday at the national assembly while answering questions from members of the house of representatives committee on public account.

The official was taken to the national assembly clinic after he slumped — and was confirmed dead minutes later.

The NCS had said Essien was a “diligent and exceptional” officer who was dedicated to his duties.

In a statement issued on Wednesday by Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, Tinubu said he received Essien’s death with “profound sadness”.

The president said the death of the customs officer while performing his duty is “most distressing”.

“President Tinubu extends his heartfelt condolences to the family of Deputy Comptroller Essien, and describes his passing while on an official assignment as most distressing,” the statement reads.
