Zazzau Emirate on Friday lost two high ranking title holders: the Iyan Zazzau, Alhaji Bashar Aminu who was one of the top contenders for the Zazzau throne and the Talban Zazzau, Alhaji Abdulkadir Pate.

Daily Trust reports that the Talban Zazzau, who died on Friday, was buried in Zaria around 3pm after the Janaza prayer.

The remains of the Iyan Zazzau, who died in Lagos after a brief illness, is being awaited at the time of filing this report.

Iyan Zazzau, Bashar Aminu, was, until his death, in a legal tussle with the Kaduna State Government over the selection of Ahmed Nuhu Bamali as emir after the death of the 18th emir, Shehu Idris on September 20th 2020.

The 19th emir of Zazzau, Ambassador Ahmed Nuhu Bamali, on Friday confirmed, through his verified twitter handle, that: “It is with the deepest regret and no pleasure that we announce the death of the most powerful traditional title holder and wealthiest prince in Northern Nigeria, Alh. Basar Aminu, Iyan Zazzau.”

He wrote: “Iyan Zazzau was legendary. We felt a big vacuum hearing his demise.

“A great soul, we mourn his death and pray that the Almighty will give his family and the entire people of Zazzau fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

“May Allah forgive his shortcomings and grant his Janna.”

Bamali who also confirmed the demise of the Talban Zazzau said: “Zazzau emirate regrets to announce the passage of Talban Zazzau, Alhaji Abdulkadir Pate.

“May Allah comfort his family, forgive his sins and grant him Aljannah Firdaus.”
