Alhaji Dokubo Asari’s first wife, Alhaja Zainab Asari Dokubo, is dead. She died alongside a friend in a motor accident on her way to Ibadan.
Chairman Oyo State Muslim community, Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni, who confirmed the death in a statement said Zainab 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. 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 beloved town Ibadan when she met her destiny.” Alhaja Asari Dokubo is survived by four children Amirah, Hassan, Hussain and Osama.
“May Allah accept her service to the faith as acts of Ibadah and admit her to jannat Firdaous,” Alhaji Sanni said.
