President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his condolence to the Shehu of Borno, Abubakar El-Kanemi, over the death of his older brother.
According to the President in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, the El-Kanemi family “is steeped in rich history and renowned for knowledge and scholarship.”
“Your older brother, Alhaji Abba Fari Shehu Umar Garbai, until his death, the District Head of Munguno was a great man in his own right. He was a man of character and remarkable integrity. He lived his entire life in the service of his people. His valuable advice will be greatly missed. May Allah forgive his gentle soul and reward his noble deeds with paradise,” President Buhari said.
