Nigeria’s Ambassador to Morocco, Alhaji Mansur Nuhu Bamalli, commonly known as the Magajin Garin Zazzau and the biological younger brother of the Emir of Zazzau, has passed away while en route to Morocco.
His death occurred at a private hospital in Lagos. The Zazzau Emirate Council’s media and publicity officer confirmed his demise, with details regarding funeral arrangements expected to be announced in due course.
Ambassador Bamalli is survived by his wife and two children. He was appointed by former President Muhammadu Buhari only a year ago in the Nigerian Foreign Service. Prior to his diplomatic role, he held the position of Deputy Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
