The dethroned Emir of Zurmi in Zamfara State, Abubakar Atiku, has died in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

According to reports, Atiku died in a private hospital following a protracted illness.

It would be recalled that the deceased was dethroned along with the Emir of Dansadau, Husaini Umar on April 27, 2021, for allegedly aiding banditry in their respective emirates.

A family member, Sani Zurmi, who confirmed the death to Punch, said that the remains of the deceased were yet to be brought to Nigeria for burial.

“His remains are still in Dubai due to the non-availability of a flight to bring the deceased back home for burial,” said Zurmi.
