His funeral prayer led by Dr Ahmad Gumi took place at the Sultan Bello Mosque, Kaduna after which he was interned the Unguwan Sarki Muslim cemetery.

Sarkin Mota, who was a community leader, died Wednesday at his home in Unguwan Sarki, Kaduna North Local Government Area after a brief illness.

He is survived by two wives, 14 children and grandchildren.

One of his wives, Hajiya Rabi Musa, while speaking with our correspondent described her husband as an honest man.

His sister, Asiya Musa said the family had lost a huge pillar.

The Emir of Zazzau, Ahmad Nuhu Bamali, who was represented by the Ciroman Zazzau, Alhaji Shehu Tijjani at the funeral, prayed Allah to overlook his shortcoming and grant him Aljannatu Firdausi.

Daily Trust recalls that on 31st October 2020, Alhaji Aliyu was at the 50th Anniversary of Arewa House in Kaduna, recognised by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar as the man who drove the first and only Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello.

The sultan asked dignitaries and guests at the event to recognise Alhaji Aliyu Sarkin Mota and the elderly man was allowed to move around the  hall to exchange pleasantries with dignities with the aid of his walking stick.
