Dr Jamilu Shinkafi (Sardaunan Matasan Arewa) also known to friends as Jagaba has died Sunday in a road accident while travelling back to Abuja from Bauchi State where he attended wedding of a friend, Ibrahim Rabo on Saturday.

His funeral held today (Monday) at his private residence in Sabon Garin Shinkafi of Zamfara State as announced by the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, former Governor Abdulaziz Yari.

The announcement was made on behalf of Yari through the Vice Chairman of APC in charge of Zamfara Central, Alhaji Sani Gwamna Mayanchi.

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami said he was with the late Shinkafi at the Bauchi wedding on Saturday.

“May the Almighty Allah forgive and be merciful to our younger brother, brother Jamilu Ibrahim Shinkafi who passed away today (Sunday) as a result of a road accident. He was with me in Bauchi, yesterday (Saturday),” Pantami said.

The Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad said, “Jamilu Shinkafi had been a brother for several years, today was his last day in this world. Indeed, we will all return to Allah (SWA) at our own appointed time. May Allah forgive all his shortcomings and grant him the highest rank of Jannah. Allah ya jikan sa, ya gafarta masa, Ameen.”

Johannes Toby W., who is on Buhari media team, said “Jamilu Shinkafi breathed life everywhere he went. He was a burning flame; sparking life at every gathering. He was present for his friends and for our party, the APC. One minute he’s bustling with his contagious energy, another minute he is gone. May his soul Rest In Peace.”
