Nuhu Muhammadu Sunusi II, the Emir of Dutse, the capital of Jigawa State, has passed away.
After a brief illness, the distinguished traditional head of state in the northwestern region of Nigeria and former chancellor of Sokoto State University passed away.
The governor of Jigawa State, Mohammed Badaru, has since sent his condolences on the emir’s departure.
Badaru described the late emir in a statement as a “true leader and a respected figure in the community, known for his wisdom, compassion, and dedication to the well-being of his people.”
He recognised the late emir’s contributions to the growth and development of Dutse and the positive impact he had on the community.
The governor offered his thoughts and prayers to the late Emir’s family and loved ones during this difficult time and said that the late Emir’s legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched.
“May the soul of the late Emir rest in peace and may the memories of his life bring comfort and solace to those he leaves behind,” the statement added.
