Dr. Ibrahim Abubakar Kana, Head of the Nigerian medical team, while confirming the death to journalists in Makkah, said that Bello, who hailed from Zaria, Kaduna State, died in his sleep Saturday night.

He described him as a hardworking nursing officer who was scheduled to reunite with his family hopefully by today (Sunday).

He extended his heartfelt condolence to the family and colleagues over the loss and prayed for the repose of his soul and the fortitude for all to bear the loss.
