When the 92 year old ex Sultan of Sokoto Ibrahim died,the son was once again given the chance to go to the burial,but once again he turned down the chance.Saying once again that he would rather
pray for him.
There were actually innitial fears when we first saw the Dasuki dead headlines,but it quickly was made known that it was the Sultan who died and not the son who was held by the EFCC on corruption charges.
Now to the missed burial story,the news that was going round was that Buhari had taken revenge on Sambo who had refused him to go to his own mother's burial while in detention.But the Presidency came out with a statement denying this.
“Let me correct the impression that Col Sambo Dasuki was prevented from attending the burial rites of his father. We had discussed with the DG SSS and he was offered the opportunity to visit his late father on his hospital bed in Abuja. “He declined, saying he preferred to remain where he was and pray for his sick father. He was also offered to be in Sokoto throughout the mourning period and also declined, preferring to pray for him. That was the true situation.”
