Asari Dokubo loses wife in accident


Ex militant leader, Mujahid Dokubo Asari, has lost his first wife, Alhaja Zainab Asari Dokubo, in a motor accident on her way to Ibadan.

This was confirmed by Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni, Chairman, Oyo state Muslim community, in a statement eulogising her saying she was already a Muslim years before she married Dokubo.

He recalled that Zainab, who lived in Ibadan had to relocate to Yenagoa, capital of Bayelsa when she was appointed Secretary of the Muslims Pilgrims Board.

“Even then, there was hardly any month she was not in Ibadan for one Islamic programme or the other,” he said.

“She was a member of many Islamic organisations in Ibadan including Oluyole Muslim community under the Imamship of Imam Mudashir Bada.

“It is interesting she was coming to her preferred town Ibadan when she met her destiny.

“She was survived by four children Amirah, Hassan, Hussain and Osama.

“May Allah accept her multifarious and multidimensional jihad as acts Ibadah and admit her to jannat Firdaous.”
