The Emir of Kaura-Namoda in Zamfara State, Mohammed Ahmad Asha, is dead.
The monarch died while awaiting the result of his COVID-19 test.
Asha’s death came exactly 24-hours after the Emir of Rano, Dr. Tafida Abubakar Ila II, died after a brief illness.
His younger brother, the Dan Jekan Kaura Namoda, Abdulkarim Ahmad Asha, who disclosed this to journalists, said the 71-year-old monarch had a long battle with diabetes and hypertension.
According to him, the late Emir spent four days in his palace, responding to treatment before the relapse.
The brother said: “He was taken to Yariman Bakura Specialists Hospital where he died after three days of admission.”
The Publicity Secretary for the Control and Prevention of COVID-19 in the state, Mustapha Jafaru, said the late monarch had been in isolation at Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital, Gusau.
