Galadima Modu Sheriff, the father to former PDP national chairman and ex-governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff, is dead.
He died in Maiduguri on Wednesday night from a fire incident that engulfed one of his rooms, a family source told Daily Correspondents.
Galadima Sheriff, until his death, was the Galadima of Dikwa emirate.
He was also a successful business mogul and very prominent son of Borno.
His death is coming less than one week after the death of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, who is also a prominent son of Borno.
His remains will be buried today in Maiduguri in accordance with Muslim rites.
