Alhaja Zainab Asari Dokubo, the first wife of Mujahid Dokubo Asarand founder of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF)loses life in an auto crash.
She was reportedly involved in a motor accident while heading to Ibadan, for a religious programme.
Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni, chairman Oyo state Muslim community, confirmed her death in a statement, according to Vanguard newspaper.
He recalled that Zainab, who lived in Ibadan, had to relocate to Yenagoa, the 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 preferred town Ibadan when she met her destiny.
“She was survived by four children Amirah, Hassan, Hussain and Osama.
“May Allah accept her multifarious and multidimensional jihad as acts Ibadah and admit her to jannat Firdaous,” Alhaji Sanni said.
