A family member of the deceased, Aliyu Ibrahim, told NAN that Hashim’s health condition deteriorated in recent days.

Ibrahim confirmed that the remains of Hashim had been buried in accordance with Islamic rites.

The deceased was a professor of Political Science.

He was a senior lecturer with Bayero University Kano (BUK) where he taught for many years before his retirement.
