Jalal, while clarifying earlier reports on the death of his father, said, “In fact, my dad was hale and hearty when he returned from Hajj. Until after he observed Isha’i prayers the same day. And between 9pm and 10pm he complained to my mum that he was feeling pains in his legs. We conveyed him to the hospital where he passed on.”

He said his late father was survived by 14 children and not 30 as earlier reported.

He appreciated dignatories including Emir of Suleja, Malam Awwal Ibrahim, for their prayers.
