Alhaji Kyari Ibrahim El-Kanemi is dead.
He was a first class chief in Borno State.
He died on Monday 27th April at the Teaching Hospital, University of Maiduguri (UMTH).
Babakura Jatto, Borno state’s Commissioner for Information, made this known today.
His words: “The commissioner said, “We regret to announce to you that the Shehu of Bama, Alhaji Kyari Ibn Ibrahim Umar Al-Amim El-Kanemi has passed away. Shehu Bama went to the hospital today and died.”
According to Hatton, the cause of the monarch’s death was not known, but assured that the government would furnish the public after receiving information from the hospital.
He urged the media not to speculate on the cause of death of the monarch.
But it would be recalled, Kano has experienced the mysterious deaths in the past one week, where top citizens are being reported dead.
However, the late monarch was installed the Shehu of Bama in 1990.
Though the dead of the monarch is unconnected to Covid-19, he has since been buried according to Islamic rites.
