Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has released a message of condolence to Army Chief, General Tukur Buratai, on the passing away of his father, Mallam Yusuf Buratai, who died Friday, 9th February, 2018, as announced by the spokesman of the Nigerian Army, Sani Usman. 

The message signed by Professor Ishaq Akintola, Director MURIC, stated “though saddened by his loss, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) received the news with a mixture of relief and pride in the army chief whose father was also a World War II veteran. 

"Like father like son, General Buratai has made Nigerians proud with his relentless prosecution of the war against Boko Haram in the same way that his late father made Nigeria and indeed the whole African continent proud with his bold escapades in the Second World War.

“Our hearts are with the Buratai family as we bow our heads solemnly in prayer seeking Allah’s forgiveness and compassion for the departed hero. May the doors of Aljannah Firdaus be flung open for his grand reception. Wa raohun wa rayhaanun wa jannatun na’iim.”
