A younger brother of the late Emir, Alhaji Aminu Jere announced on Wednesday that he had just lost his brother, Dr. Usman.
According to Aminu, “Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Illaihi Rajiun. I just lost a brother in person of HRH the Sarkin Jere, Dr Sa’ad Usman, PhD.”
“Janazah at Jere, by 2pm Insha Allah.”
Dr. Sa’ad Usman was at various times, Secretary of the Kaduna State Government, aside other top positions he had occupied in his impressive civil service record.
It could be recalled that the late monarch was hospitalized in London, UK, following injuries he sustained during an altercation that ensued between him and some locals, who were alleged to have hit him with an implement.
The feud between the late Emir and the locals in 2014, was alleged to have emanated from a land dispute.
He was brought home from London early 2018. But never recovered from the sickness. He was bedridden till his death.
A close source to the late monarch confirmed that he was even brought to Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital in Kaduna recently for further treatment when he could not sleep.No tags for this post.
