President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Alhaji Ibrahim Dauda, is dead.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said Ibrahim Duada died in Daura, Katsina State, following a prolonged illness.
In a condolence message, President Buhari said the death had 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,” Shehu quoted the President to have said.
He said the President prayed God to forgive the deceased and reward his great and noble deeds with paradise.
The deceased is survived by a number of children, including Dauda Ibrahim, a Chief Administrative Officer in State House, Abuja.
