President Muhammadu Buhari has lost his nephew, Mutari Dauda.
This was according to a statement by Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu on Friday. The cause of his death was however not stated.
“Let me on behalf of myself and my family convey to you my deepest sympathy for the loss of Mutari Dauda. Death is inevitable and every soul must taste death one day.
“What we owe the dead are not tears, because our tears can’t bring them back, but what they deserve are our prayers. In this regard, my heart and prayers go out to all the family members and the Daura community as a whole over this irreparable loss.
“May Allah forgive his gentle soul and reward his goods deeds with aljanna. Amin,” prayed Buhari.
