Dokubo-Asari Loses Wife to Accident in Ibadan


Zainab Dokubo-Asari, the first wife of Mujaid Dokubo-Asari, has died in a motor accident on her way to Ibadan, the Oyo State capital. This was disclosed by Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni, the Chairman of the Oyo State Muslim Community on Wednesday.

Sanni said Zainab was already a Muslim years before she married Dokubo-Asari.
He said in a statement on the development: “When their lives was in danger during former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime, she and Mujaida the second wife moved to my house with their children in Ibadan.

When Jonathan came on board their husband wanted them to move to Port Hacourt but she begged him to allow her to stay in Ibadan the atmosphere she found very Islamic being a pious Muslim lady.

“Eventually she had to locate to Yenagoa capital of Bayelsa when she was appointed  Secretary of the pilgrims board. Even then there was hardly any month she was not in Ibadan for one Islamic programme or the other. She was a member of many Islamic organisations in Ibadan including Oluyole Muslim community under the Imamship of Imam Mudashir Bada.

“It is interesting she was coming to her preferred town Ibadan when she met her destiny.

“She was survived  by four children Amirah, Hassan, Hussain and Osama.
“May Allah accept her multifarious and multidimensional jihad as acts Ibadah and admit her to Jannat Firdaous.”
