Dethroned Zamfara monarch who allegedly supported banditry is dead

By Davies Ngere Ify

Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, the former Emir of Zurmi in Zamfara State, has reportedly passed away.

He died while receiving medical care in Egypt, according to reports.

The monarch was rushed to Egypt few days ago when his family members noticed that his health was deteriorating and needed urgent medication.

According to the family source, the monarch died last Friday.

The source explained that his remains would be taken back to his home in Zurmi Local Government Area of the State for burial according to Islamic tradition.

WITHIN NIGERIA reports that the State government has issued no official statement over the death of the dethroned Emir.

Recall that the monarch was dismissed by the governor of Zamfara State, Hon. Bello Mohammed Matawalle, for allegedly taking part in banditry activities.

He was imprisoned in Government House for several months.

The Emir and two other monarchs were later charged to court by the State government due to pressure from Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

The court granted them bail.
