President Muhammadu Buhari has announced the death of his nephew, Ibrahim Dauda.
Buhari, in a statement signed by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said Dauda died in Daura, Katsina State, following a prolonged illness.
The president in his condolence message said the death has robbed the family and the Daura community of one of its finest gentlemen.
“I am deeply touched and devastated by the passing of yet another family member, a man who had demonstrated amazing kindness and honesty in all his dealings,” the President said.
He prayed God to forgive the soul of the deceased and reward his great and noble deeds with paradise.
According to the statement, the deceased is survived by a number of children, including Dauda Ibrahim, a Chief Administrative Officer in State House, Abuja.
