It's with deep sorrow and grief that we received the report of the death of our beloved friend and colleague in the journalism profession Mal Baballe Mukhtar Fagge.
Aged 67, Mal Baballe Fagge passed away on the eve of Sunday night at Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital Kano (AKTH) after a protracted illness and his remains buried Monday morning at Tarauni Central Graveyard, Kano.
A veteran broadcaster, pioneer staff of then CTV (ARTV), senior reporter at Radio Kano who earlier served at American Embassy Kaduna until his last minute of breath was working with Express FM Radio.
Mal Baballe Mukhtar Fagge, a hardworking and committed personality who devoted most of his life to the development and progress of his community and people of Kano State, is survived by a wife, many children and relatives.
Indeed, the deceased will be long remembered by his colleagues, particularly those in media circles who either work or had in contact with him at various points.
At this juncture, we once again extended our condolences to the deceased's immediate family as well as entire members of NUJ across the country. May Allah SWT forgive his shortcomings and grant his family strength and courage to bear the sad bereavement. Amin.
Hakika munyi rashin aboki Allah ya jikansa da gafara ya kuma bawa iyalansa da yan uwansa da sauran abokansa hakurin rashin amin.
