The Nigerian presidency says President Goodluck Jonathan's younger brother has died.

Spokesman Reuben Abati said in a statement that Meni Innocent Jonathan died Tuesday at the National Hospital in Nigeria's capital of Abuja following a brief illness.

The hospital is considered one of most modern hospitals in a country where the political class typically seeks medical treatment abroad.

President Jonathan's brother died on the president's 55th birthday.
