Suleiman Idris, Kwara Assembly member, is dead.
A family source, who craved anonymity, said Idris might have died as a result of diabetes-related illness.

Medical personnel at the UITH were said to have battled in vain to save Idris’ life as he died on Wednesday.
The lawmaker, until his death, was a two-term legislator and represented llesha-Gwannara constituency in Baruteen Local Government Area of the state.
The announcement of Idris’ death threw the state lawmakers and workers at the state House of Assembly complex into mourning.
The Speaker of the Assembly, Mr. Razak Atunwa, who was on his way to the floor of the House for the presentation and passage of the budget before he was informed of the death, immediately conveyed a meeting with the state legislators.

He later adjourned plenary till Tuesday, February 24 in honour of the late lawmaker.
