Emir of Daura returns to domain

Emir of Daura, Umar Farouk Umar

Emir of Daura, Farouk Umar, has returned to Daura one week after he was discharged from the Federal Medical Centre, Katsina.

The monarch, who was rushed from Daura to the hospital in Katsina on May 5 for an undisclosed illness, returned to his domain on Thursday evening.

He was discharged from the medical centre last Thursday and driven into his residence at Brahimo Housing Estate, Katsina, where he rested for a week.

In a brief interview after his release from the hospital, the emir urged the people to support the government in curbing the spread of COVID-19.

“I want to draw the attention of the people world over that the current pandemic is not a joke, hence people should fear God and return to God,” he said.

“If the world is not settled, people should not expect anything good even if you are physically healthy.”
