The Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir El-rufai, has lost his son, Hamza, to a car crash in Abuja.
He announced the death of his son today.
“From Allah we came and to him we shall return,” the All Progressives Congress (APC) leader wrote in a brief obituary.
“Please join our family in praying for the repose of the soul of my son Hamza El-Rufai, who died in a motor accident in Abuja.”
Hamza, 23, a student of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Dubai, and was billed to graduate in 2015.
Hamza’s death comes just three months after El-Rufai’s elder brother lost his daughter, Zainab El-Rufai Mohammed, to sickle cell anaemia.
Zainab was survived by her husband Mohammed and a baby boy.
In November 2011, Nasir also lost Yasmin, his eldest daughter, to epilepsy in the United Kingdom. She was 25 at the time of her death.
