The Governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, on Tuesday, expressed deep shock at the death of Hajiya Fatima Bintu Bagudu, the youngest wife of the Chairman, State Council of Traditional Rulers, Estu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar.
She died on Sunday night at the National Hospital, Abuja after a brief illness at the age of 30.
The governor lamented that though all mortals must taste death, the early departure of the Etsu’s wife was so painful in view of her modest achievements within her brief stay.
“Though no one can determine when he or she will answer the call of the Creator, we are only grieved now because Hajiya Fatima Bintu Bagudu, the wife of our esteemed and highly revered Etsu Nupe passed on at a very tender age.
“She will not only be missed by the palace for her humility, but by the entire Emirate Council for her doggedness in the promotion and preservation of Nupe culture,” Gov. Sani Bello eulogised.
