Emir of Rano, Dr Abubakar Tafida Ila II, is dead. He was aged 74.

The emir, who was rushed to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH) on Friday, gave up the ghost today.

Ila, critically ill, was referred to the Nassarawa Specialist Hospital for further medical attention,

Alhaji Kabiru Alasan, the Turakin Rano and member Rano Emirate Council, confirmed the monarch’s death.

He said Tafida died after a brief illness.

Alasan, who is also a member representing Rano-Kibiya-Bunkure Federal Constituency, said the emir passed on while on admission at the Abdullahi Wase Specialist Hospital, Nassarawa.

The monarch, a former ambassador is survived by two wives and 17 children.

Tafida was installed Emir of Rano in 2019, sequel to the creation of five emirate councils by the Kano State House of Assembly.

Concerns have been heightened in the state over the rash of deaths, amid the coronavirus outbreak.

In one alarming instance, 13 people died in one day.

A government committee set up to probe the deaths is yet to submit a report.

    Jasper will hurt himself because of President Buhari. the moment Atiku and his brother Peter Obi lost the election since then he has developed migraine,

  2. Jasper I pity you !
    I never belief that your sickness of been obsessed about Buhari is organic.
    It gives me clue that you are psychotic and you will continue to see Buhari around you even when sleeping.
    You need a psychiatrist who may try you on Zyprexa if it will work for you. It will balance the chemicals in your brain.
    Truly you are sick and your thinking is highly distorted .

    • Nigerians are not difficult to rule if the govt is doing some little little things they are supposed to be doing,nobody will even bother anyone in power.
