One of the daughters of the former governor, Zulai Balarabe Musa, confirmed the death of her father. She said Musa died in the early hours of Wednesday. According to her, the remains of the former governor will be buried after the Zuhur Muslim prayer (1pm) today, according to Islamic rites.
Earlier, former Kaduna-Central Senator, Shehu Sani, had announced the death on Twitter.
Balarabe was the leader of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) in the 4th Republic but stepped down as the chairman in 2018 due to health issues.
The former governor died at 84years old.
