The Emir of the Rano Emirate in Kano State, Tafida Abubakar-Ila, has died.
He died at a hospital in Kano on Saturday, May 2, 2020, almost one year after the Kano State Government created four new Emirate Councils and made him a first-class emir in Rano.
A member of the House of Representatives and Turakin Rano, Alhassan Rurum, confirmed the death of the emir.
The lawmakers said the Emir died at a hospital after a brief illness.
He is survived by 17 children and two wives.
