Rabi Dantata, the wife of Kano businessman Aminu Dantata, passed away on Saturday in Saudi Arabia.
The deceased, popularly addressed as Mama Rabi, reportedly died in a hospital in Saudi Arabia while receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
One of the deceased’s grandsons, Sunusi Dantata, confirmed her death on his verified Twitter account. “Please pray for our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Haj. Rabi, wife of Alh. Aminu Dantata, who died yesterday (Saturday),” he wrote.
The deceased, who was the second wife of Mr. Dantata, is survived by her aged husband, five children, and many grandchildren. Among the children are Tajjuddeen Dantata, Batulu Dantata, Hafsa Dantata, Jamila Dantata, and Aliya Dantata.
She passed away four months after her 91-year-old husband, Mr. Dantata, said he no longer enjoyed life and that he was just waiting for his time and hoped to depart this world in good faith.
The family has requested prayers for the deceased and has asked Allah to forgive her, accept her good deeds, and grant her the highest rank in paradise.
