President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family, government and people of Kwara State over the death of the Etsu Patigi, His Royal Highness, Etsu Chatta Umar.

President Buhari commended the monarch’s commitment to the peace, stability and development of not only his domain but also the entire state, urging that his worthy legacy is sustained.

The late Etsu Chatta Umar reportedly died in Abuja on Tuesday night after a brief illness.

The report of the Etsu’s death was contained in a message by Muritala Raheem, Personal Assistant to the Emir of Ilorin and the Chairman of the state’s Council of Emirs and Obas.

The deceased until his death, was the vice chairman of the state’s traditional council. The remains of the first class traditional ruler were buried on Wednesday in Patigi by 2 pm.

Meanwhile, the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, has expressed shock at the death of the emir. Sulu-Gambari described the late monarch as highly respected, adding that his demise was a colossal loss to humanity.

The emir in his condolence message signed by the National Secretary of Shehu Alimi Foundation for Peace and Development, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona, said that Etsu Chatta Umar was a true epitome of peace and symbol of unity to the entire Nupe speaking tribes in Kwara and beyond.

According to him, his death will no doubt create a wide vacuum which cannot be forgotten so soon.

He further noted that late Etsu Chatta Umar was until his death the vice chairman of the Kwara State Traditional Council and had used his wealth of experience to promote the council through his numerous outstanding contributions.

“I received the news of his death with rude shock. Etsu Chatta Umar was a peace-loving monarch whose penchant for the growth and development of the emirate and state at large knows no bound. We will surely miss him.

“I pray that Almighty Allah will forgive his shortcomings, admit him into Al-Janatul Firdaos and give the family and the entire people of Patigi Emirate Council the fortitude to bear the great loss,’’ he said.

Also, President Buhari has also commiserated with the family, the government and people of Katsina State on the death of the District Head of Kafur, Alhaji Rabe Abubakar, Dan Galadiman Katsina.

The President described the late traditional ruler as a deeply religious, peaceful and kind-hearted man who was committed to the welfare and progress of the people in his domain.

President Buhari prayed that God Almighty would comfort the bereaved families, friends and associates of the departed royal fathers and grant peace to their souls.
