The Head of Sokoto Kingmakers, Magajin Garin Sokoto, Alh. Hassan Danbaba, is dead.
The influential kingmaker, who was the grandson of the late Premier of Northern Nigeria, reportedly slumped in his hotel in Kaduna around 11.30 am.
But he died on his way to a hospital.
He died barely a year after he lost his mother, A’ishatu, the eldest daughter of the late Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardaunan Sokoto.
His mother died in Dubai, UAE in April 2020.
A source said: “Magajin came to Kaduna on Thursday to condole with a former Minister of Defence, Gen. Aliyu Gusau on the death of his brother.
“As usual of him, he lodged in his hotel, Stonehedge in Kaduna metropolis.
“Both Gusau and Magajin had prepared to make a joint return trip from Kaduna to Abuja on Saturday. After having his bath at 11 am, he dressed up to go and join Gen. Gusau in his house.
