A former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, Sunday morning lost one of his sons in a car crash.
“From Allah, we came and to Him we shall return. Please join our family in praying for the repose of the soul of my son, Hamza El-Rufai who died this morning in a motor accident in Abuja,” he wrote.
Orijoreporter recalls that about three years ago, the former FCT’s minister’s eldest daughter, Yasmine, died suddenly in her London apartment. In October 2013, El-Rufai’s immediate brother, Ibrahim and his nephew Lawal Sani-Gwandu were also killed in a car crash.
