Nigeria's "oldest school pupil" dies, aged 83. His teacher says he was "easygoing and jovial

Mohammud Modibbo, who has died at the age of 83, was believed to be the oldest school pupil i Nigeria.

He started primary school in his mid-seventies, and had recently begun secondary school in the northern city of Kano.
He was unable to go to school as a child because he worked as a trader, travelling from place to place.
"He was easygoing and very jovial," Abdulkarim Ibrahim, a teacher at his school, told the BBC Hausa Service.
"During classes, he was very attentive and asked questions when he didn't understand - either asking the teacher or a student sitting beside him."
