Alhaji Aliyu Dasuki, who spoke to LEADERSHIP at his father's residence in Kaduna, however said, "It was her time to go, and that's what everyone must taste."

Aliyu decribed his mother as the best mother anyone would ever wish to have.

"Gwaggo was nice to all, very honest, strict and simple mother you can imagine. I will really miss her," he said.
