Vanguard quoted a source as saying that the late Danbaba “was in Kaduna to condole with another Influential Northerner, Lt. General Aliyu Gusau (retd), former NSA, former Minister for Defence, who recently lost his elder brother.”

Sadly, Danbaba died in his hotel around 11:30 am and the governor of the state, Nasir El-Rufai, ordered the evacuation of his remains to the “Government House, for an airlift to Sokoto for the funeral,” the source added.

Danbaba who was the grandson of the late Premier of Northern Region, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Sardauna Sokoto, was buried according to Islamic rites.

Danbaba was described as one of the Kingmakers in the Sokoto Caliphate as well as the Head of Sokoto Kingmakers.
