Africa’s richest man, and chairman of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote is bereaved.
He lost his niece, Fatima Bello Dangote to the cold hand of death last week.
Sources disclosed that Fatima died in a private hospital in the United Kingdom, after a protracted battle with brain cancer.
Fatima was the daughter of Aliko’s younger brother, Alhaji Bello Dangote, who died in the ill-fated plane crash alongside Ibrahim Abacha in 1996. Her battle with brain cancer began a couple of years back.
Dangote, who acted as her guardian and foster father, after her father’s death, single-handedly brought her up and trained her through high school and universities.
The Kano-born billionaire is reported to be very shattered by her death.
Fatima Bello Dangote’s remains were interred in London last week
