The Emir of Billiri, Dr. Abdu Buba Maisheru ll (Mai Tangale), is dead.
Former Gombe state Governor, Hassan Dankwambo, confirmed his passing away on Monday.
Dankwambo, however, did not give details of his death.
The ex-Governor in a post on his Twitter page expressed shock over the Emir’s death.
“My Family and I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the good people of Gombe over the death of His Royal Highness, Dr. Abdu Buba Maisheru ll (Mai Tangale) the Emir of Billiri.
“His death came as a rude shock, but I pray Almighty God grant his soul, eternal repose,” he wrote.
Recall that the first class ruler of Tangale chiefdom in Gombe had months ago tested positive for coronavirus but recovered after treatment for 12 days.
