The family of the Grand Leader of the Tijaniyya Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Dahiru Usman, has debunked reports circulating online that he is dead.

Reports made rounds online in the early hours of Wednesday that the famous Islamic scholar was dead.

Reacting to the publication, a family member of the cleric, Sanusi Dahiru, who spoke with journalists, said that the 97-year-old scholar is hale and hearty.

He urged people to disregard the death rumour while pleading with the Muslim faithful to continue praying for the cleric.

He said, “We spoke with him and he is very fine in Abuja this morning.

“Sheikh Dahiru-Bauchi will leave Abuja for Kaduna tomorrow (Thursday) for the closing ceremony of the annual Qur’an Tafsir, where he was represented by his son, Dr Sulumbai Dahiru.

“So, people and admirers should disregard the rumours that Sheikh Dahiru Usman-Bauchi is dead.

“He is still alive with good health despite old age and we urge the Muslim faithful to pray for the good health of the cleric.”
