The Southern Kaduna People in the Diaspora, U.S.A have expressed grief over the demise of the Agwam Bajju, His Royal Highness, Nuhu Bature, OON who passed on after a brief illness on Saturday December 18.

In a condolence statement signed by SOKAD Coordinator, Professor Martin Shinkut and President, Ms Alice Chat Osunde, the group described the death of the Agwam Bajju I as a monumental loss not only to the Bajju Chiefdom in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area of the state but to the state and the entire country.

The statement reads;

It is with profound sorrow that we learned of the unfortunate and tragic passing of His Highness Nuhu Bature, the Agwam Bajju who passed on Saturday December 18, 2021. His death is coming at a time that the Kajju Community, Southern Kaduna, Kaduna state and indeed the north needed his service, experience and patriotic enthusiasm the most in addressing the pressing violence that has become endemic to Southern Kaduna and the North as a whole. We have lost a man of wisdom, who was a unifying factor and a worthy ambassador who excelled in his role as a royal father.

Our grief is indeed heartfelt, for we note with great commendation the outstanding contributions of his Royal Highness to the development and peace of Kajju Community in particular, Zangon Kataf Local Government, Southern Kaduna, and Kaduna State as a whole.

From the inception of his rule as the first Chief of Kajju, HH Nuhu Bature showed love for his people and respect for justice. He was a good leader known for his commitment to peace and unity in the community. He made great efforts to ensure that development to areas within his jurisdiction and beyond was evenly spread.

HH Nuhu Bature will certainly be remembered for his leadership qualities that united, strengthened and enhanced the progress of the Kajju people. His untiring efforts at community development and furthering the struggle for peace, his faith in his subjects, his sincerity and commitment to democratic ideals are legacies he would be remembered for. HH was a true Nigerian, a leader of high character and moral values, a good leader with immense prowess and dexterity, with a clean and impeccable record to his credit.

We mourn the loss of this illustrious son of Kajju and pledge our unswerving solidarity, love and support for the ideals he stood for, and resolve to strengthen the bonds uniting the people of Southern Kaduna. Once more, we express our sincere condolence to the family of HH Nuhu Bature, the entire Kajju community, Zangon Kataf Local Government, and the entire Southern Kaduna community. We pray that the Almighty God grant perpetual rest to His Highness, and comfort to the immediate family, Kajju community, and all of us on this mournful moment.
