Lt. General Joshua Dogonyaro (Rtd) has died.

Dogonyaro known for his role in the ouster of General Muhammadu Buhari military junta and ushered in the Ibrahim Babangida junta on August 27, 1985, was 80 years old.

African News Today could not verify the cause of the death at the time of filing this report but a family source confirmed his death to SaharaReporters.

Dogonyaro was born on September 12, 1940, and hailed from Langtang North in Plateau.

He was also one of the staunch anti-democracy generals who supported the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election, which denied the winner, Chief MKO Abiola the presidency after an overwhelming support from a large section of Nigerians, who voted in an election widely believed to be free and fair.

He served in many capacities before his retirement from the military.
