A former Nigerian senator, Joseph Waku, has died. He passed on at the National Hospital, Abuja, on Sunday evening, his wife, Rosemary Waku, said on Monday morning.

Aged 72, Waku was a senator representing Benue North-West Senatorial District from 1999 to 2003.

He became a prominent member of the Arewa Consultative Forum shortly after leaving the Senate.

He hailed from Guma Local Government Area of Benue State, and was a vocal voice against the incessant killings of Tiv and other ethnic nationalities across central Nigerian by suspected herdsmen.
