“From Allah we came and to Him we shall return. Please join our family in praying for the repose of the soul of my son Hamza El-Rufai who died this morning in a motor accident in Abuja,” the former minister announced on his Facebook page this morning.

Details of the incident are still sketchy at this time.

  • Dan maikoko

    Life is not only about what we leave behind but its also about what adversities we endure. Its a trial for you personally Mr. El-Rufai and by the grace of Allah you will endure and triumph. You lost your daughter recently and we all pray for you and them. May their gentle souls rest in aljannah firdausi.

  • Ehi

    May God grant the family strength to bear their loss. No one deserves this.

    Elrufai always attributes negative things to Jonathan administration. He is a practitioner in playing the ostrich and never saw anything bad in demolishing homes of the poor people in Abuja. Let us see if he is going accuse Jonathan as responsible for the death of his son, his daughter in 2011, his junior brother last year and the daughter of his senior brother too. It is all part of law of karma that the evil men do consume them here on earth. Let Elrufai seek for forgiveness from all he either destroyed or betrayed.

      all of us will die and all will lose loved ones. rejoice not at the death of even your enemies but pray that they may be converted to what you term as good beings.

    • Shehu

      “EVERY SOUL MUST TASTE DEATH” YOU SHOULDN’T CELEBRATE ON ANOTHER PERSON’S DEATH. LET US ALL SEEK FORGIVENESS FROM ALLAH FOR OUR SINS BECAUSE SURELY WE DON’T KNOW WHEN OURS WILL COME.

  • Islam Haram

    Let them continue to die. He is a sympathizer of Boko-Haram. The innocent blood of non-Muslims are fighting back. His next book will be on “Accidental Dead in His Family”. Bastard!

        $ The blood of non-Muslims will never go in vain. All sympathizers of El-Rufai and Boko-Haram will continue to pay with untimely death. This tragedy will continue until El-rufai and his fellow Muslims stop killing non-Muslims.

        All am asking for is STOP killing NON-MUSLIMS. Simple!

        Death to all sympathizers of El-Rufai and Boko-Haram.

    A sinner will never go without punishment . useless and empty barrel. He abused the leaving God without him knowing that his words will soonest backfire upon him and now he was realized that there is living God.

    • Shehu

      DEATH IS INEVITABLE FOR SINNERS AND SAINTS. SO WHY DO YOU WASTE YOUR TIME WRITING THIS RUBBISH. DON’T YOU SIN? SEEK FOR GOD’S MERCY.

    • bolade emanuel

      u are too sentimental,i wish a brutal and fatal death,since you think you think death is for those who hv sinned against god,dont you hv grannies or siblings that hv died or u think u will leave forever,may ur generation die in a plane crash or a car accident since you dont sympathize wit whoever dies in whatever situation.think straight and dump your sentimental and hateful mindset
