President Buhari has lost his nephew Alhaji Mutari Dauda Daura to the cold hands of death, days after he lost his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari and his in-law Alhaji Modu Sheriff.
Though the cause of death was not revealed in the statement released by the President’s media aide Garba Shehu on Friday May 8, it was however gathered that the deceased was the younger brother of President Buhari’s nephew, Malam Mamman Daura.
The condolence message to his extended family and the Daura community, reads in part;
“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.”
