Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has mourned the death of the first class traditional ruler in Zonkwa Chiefdom.

This was expressed in a statement on Sunday by Muyiwa Adekeye, Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication.

According to the statement, El-Rufai condoled the people of Zonkwa Chiefdom and the family of His Royal Highness Nuhu Bature, the Agwam Kajju on his demise.

He described HH Nuhu Bature as a good man, a decent monarch and a proponent of peaceful existence, whose counsel and wisdom was always cherished.

The Governor acknowledged the deceased’s stature as a royal father who sought to build bridges as part of his resolute commitment to peace and harmony.

Bature became the first monarch of the Bajju Chiefdom after its creation in 1995, following the Zangon Kataf crises of 1992 in which a resolution was reached and the creation of the long-agitated independent Chiefdom for the Atyap and Bajju from the British-imposed Zazzau Emirate was arrived at. In 2012, HRH Agwam Bature decried that 17 years after the creation of the chiefdom, Ka̠jju (the land of the Bajju people) was yet to have a palace.
