Former Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki has died at the age of 93. He died Monday and will be buried Tuesday, according to Muslim rites.

The late Sultan Dasuki, father of ex-National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, was deposed in 1996 by the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, after he was installed by Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, in 1988.

He ruled for eight years before his deposition and banishment to Zing, in Taraba State.

Dasuki was the first Sultan from the Buhari line of the House of Dan Fodio. He was a close associate of Ahmadu Bello and held the traditional title of Baraden Sokoto before becoming Sultan.
