Kano- The death has occurred of the renowned Second Republic politician in Kano, Alhaji Ammani Inuwa.
Inuwa died in the early hours of Monday at his residence in Fagge Quarters at the age of 78, after a protracted illness.
The announcement of his death was made by his eldest son, Alhaji Animu Ammani, in Kano on Monday.
He said his father just returned from a medical trip abroad and that he had taken a similar trip to Saudi Arabia in recent times.
Late Inuwa started his political journey during the days of the Northern Elements Progressives Union (NEPU) and later the Peoples’ Redemption Party (PRP).
The late political icon became popular at the peak of the present political dispensation which made one of the most popular names in the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP).
During the tenure of Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, he defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after realising that he and his supporters were no longer relevant in the APC.
Late Inuwa, who had been buried according to Islamic rites, is survived by three wives, 16 children and many grand children.
Meanwhile, many people have continued to pay condolence visit to the family house of the deceased located at Fagge quarters, Kano. (NAN)
