A senior counsellor in Kano Emirate Council, Prof. Isa Hashim, is dead.
Hashim, who was the Jarman Kano, died on Sunday morning after a brief illness.
A family source, Ibrahim Aliyu, told reporters that the 86-year-old traditional title holder died when his health deteriorated following the deaths of some of his childhood friends in quick succession.
Hashim, a Professor of Political Science, was a senior lecturer with Bayero University Kano (BUK) where he taught for many years before his retirement.
