By Khairat Sulaiman Jaruma

The dethroned Emir of Zurmi in Zamfara state, Abubakar Atiku has died during a brief illness in a hospital in Egypt. He died on Friday.

He was flown out of the country a few days after family members noticed his health condition was deteriorating and needed urgent medical attention.

Zurmi Emirate has continued to bear the brunt of armed bandits’ attack which has forced many locals to abandon their ancestral homes and farmlands for safer communities.
