A former senator, Ahmed Aruwa, is dead. Mr Aruwa, 70, represented Kaduna Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly between 1999 and 2007.
Confirming the death of the senator, one of his younger brothers, Suleiman, said he died at about 4:30 a.m. at a private hospital in Kaduna.
Suleiman described his late brother as an easy going fellow who always respected others.
“As Muslims, we know Allah takes and give but it’s painful because we are going to miss him seriously. He was a good man who always minds his business.
“No matter what you did to him, the moment you apologise, he will forgive and forget. We are going to miss him seriously,” he said. Suleiman said his brother’s funeral prayer would take place at Sultan Bello Mosque, Kaduna by 1 p.m.
