The late Hajja reportedly died after a brief illness at her home in Maiduguri, Borno State, and will be buried today.

Buratai lost his father, Alhaji Yusuf Buratai, on 9 February 2018.
The senior Buratai was an ex-serviceman.
He took part in the World War II, by joining the West African Army in 1942
