Alhaji Hassan Mohammed Sharif, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Bauchi, died in a ghastly motor accident along Abuja expressway on Sunday.
The cause of the accident is not yet a public discourse issue in Bauchi.
WikkiTimes learned that the funeral prayer of the late APC Chieftain, widely acclaimed to be a media-friendly politician, will be held later today at the Palace of Emir of Bauchi by 2:00 pm.
Before his dead, Sherif contested for the APC state Chairmanship in Bauchi state but lost to Babayo Aliyu Misau early this year, which later metamorphosed into the emergence of two factions of the party in the state.
The faction widened following a court order obtained by Sherif restraining Mr Misau from parading himself as the Chairman of the party in the state.
