Former Chadian leader Idriss Deby Itno visited Nigeria on Saturday 27 March for the last time.

It was a visit remarkable for the several elbow shakes he had with the Nigerian leader, as captured by President Buhari’s photographer, Sunday Aghaeze.

Perhaps it was a way of saying goodbye or that he sensed the end was near.

President Buhari travelled out of Nigeria thereafter for a medical check up, while the 68 year-old Chadian leader went on to win the April 6 election in a landslide.

But Deby lost everything when he was killed on the battle front, north of his country at the weekend.

He had gone to the front line, several hundred kilometres north of the capital N’Djamena, on Saturday to visit troops battling rebels belonging to a group calling itself Fact (the Front for Change and Concord in Chad).

He was gravelly wounded. He didn’t survive the injury.

His death was announced Tuesday after more than 30 years in power.
