Zazzau Emirate has lost a Prince and District head, Engineer Aminu Umar.

He died after participating in all the Sallah durbar and other Eid-el-Fitr activities.

Late Engineer Umar who was also the Walin Zazzau and District head of Ikara, is a descendant of late Emir Dalhat from the Barebari ruling dynasty of Zazzau Emirate.

He was onetime Chief Executive Officer of the Kaduna State Water Board.

As Walin Zazzau, late Engineer Umar was one of the most senior titleholders in the emirate.

He has since been buried, according to Islamic rite, at Amaru in Zaria city.
