The Chief Imam of Fagge Juma’at Mosque, Sheikh Nasir Muhammad Nasir, is dead.
The cleric died on Wednesday after a protracted illness and will be buried today, Thursday, June 8, 2023, at the Emir of Kano’s palace.
The late Islamic scholar, popularly known as Limamin Waje, died at the age of 87.
The deceased was turbaned as Wazirin Kano by the late Emir Ado Bayero but removed by former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso.
