The remains of Nigerian lawmaker, Senator Mustapha Bukar, who died in the early hours of Wednesday have been laid to rest in his hometown in Daura, Katsina State. Bukar died at the age of 63 at a private hospital in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. His body was however flown from the Abuja hospital to his hometown, Daura, where he was buried in line with Islamic rights.
Before his death, Bukar was President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senator as he represented the president’s senatorial district. Dignitaries at the burial, on Wednesday, in Katsina include Deputy Governor of Katsina State, Manir Yakubu; Speaker of the House of Assembly, Abubakar Kusada, among others.
The news of Bukar’s death is coming less than a week after the Deputy Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Umar Jibril, died. Two weeks ago, the Red Chambers also mourned the death of another Senator, Ali Wakili. Before his death, Wakili was representing Bauchi South Senatorial District at the House of Assembly. Bukar was survived by two wives and 12 children, including Ibrahim Bukar of the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC).
