The 18th Sultan of Sokoto, Ibrahim Dasuki, is dead.
Mr. Dasuki died in a private hospital in Abuja on Monday night.

Mr. Dasuki was a close associate of Ahmadu Bello, the late Sardauna of Sokoto, and was also a friend to late Islamic scholar, Abubakar Gumi.

Mr. Dasuki was also influential in the founding of Jama’atu Nasril Islam, JNI.

He is expected to be buried according to Islamic rites on Tuesday.
