Ex-President Shehu Shagari buried in Sokoto – (Photos)

Ex-president Shehu Shagari has been buried, the first and only President of Nigeria’s Second Republic was committed to the earth at some minutes past 3 pm in his town in Sokoto State on Saturday.

Afterward, special prayers were offered for the soul of the late President.

Present at the event were Boss Mustapha, who represented current President, Muhammadu Buhari, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, as well as politicians, elder statesmen, friends and well-wishers of the departed.


Shagari died at the National Hospital Abuja on Friday after a brief illness.

The late ex-President’s grandson, Nuradeen Mahe disclosed that the late President was moved to the National Hospital, Abuja on December 25, when “his health worsened, but he later died after being attended to by medical experts.”

Shagari, who won his second term election was, however, overthrown by a coup d’etat that brought in Muhammadu Buhari as Military Head of State.
