Olaide Oyelude, Katsina

The Emir of Daura, Alhaji Faruq Umar, has lost his younger brother, Abdullahi Umar, in an auto crash.

The younger Umar died in a ghastly road accident along Katsina/Daura road on Sunday, along with his two friends.

Details surrounding the accident were sketchy, but Governor Aminu Masari was in Daura on Monday to console with the Emir over the loss.

He was accompanied on the trip by his Special Adviser on Higher Education, Dr Bashir Ruwangodiya, among other top government officials.

The governor was received at the Emir’s palace by the Emir Faruq Umar, the state Attorney General, Ahmed El-Marzuq, and Ambassador Adamu Sa’idu.

Masari also visited the residences of the other two deceased persons where he condoled with their families.

He prayed the Almighty Allah to shower his mercies on the souls of the deceased and give their families the fortitude to bear the loss.
