One of the emirs appointed by the Kano’s state governor, has died after spending time at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital.
Governor Abdullar Ganduje split the Kano state emirate because of a rift he had with the deposed monarch Lamido Sanusi Lamido, and he appointed Tafida Abubakar Ila, 74, emir of Rano.
The emir who leaves behind two wives and 17 children, is to be buried today in the cemetery located inside the famous Rano palace.
The cause of the new emir’s death is not yet be declared officially, but there is an increase of death in Kano since the first positive index case of COVID19.
This has led President Muhammadu Buhari to place the country in a lock down and he recently directed that a curfew put on Kano state for two weeks.
DENISAURUS News understands that a former speaker of the House of Representative, currently in London has not been able to return back to Nigeria because of the lock down.
Ghali Umar Na’Abba CFR, who is from Kano state, spoke with DENISAURUS News from London on Saturday afternoon, saying that “Nigeria is not as developed as other countries that has succeeded in containing the COVID-19 pandemic.”
He confirmed to the paper that a relative of his had died of the disease.
