(BREAKING): Head Of Sokoto Kingmakers Danbaba Dies

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – 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.

“While about to leave, he slumped. His aides rallied around him and rushed him to a hospital. But on the way, he gave up the ghost.”

Until his death, he was one of those behind the Rice Revolution of President Muhammadu Buhari being championed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

He played a key role in the last Rice Pyramid fair in Abuja by the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria(RIFAN).

Magajin Garin Sokoto was part of the eminent Nigerians who converged on Lagos last weekend to find solutions to the challenges confronting the country ahead of the 2023 elections.

A cosmopolitan Nigerian, the late Magajin Garin Sokoto was a Director of THISDAY newspapers until he died.
