Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has recounted the painful experience of how he watched his younger brother, Sani Dangote, die.
Dangote shared this when APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, paid a condolence visit to him and his family at his Kano residence on Friday, November 19.
It can be recalled that the deceased, who was the Vice President of Dangote Groups, died in the United States on Sunday, November 14, after a long battle with cancer.
Speaking about how he died, Dangote said he, their mother, and Sani’s children were by his bed when he passed away, adding that it was tough to watch life leave his body.
“It is a very tough time for us; it has been very trying, especially for myself. Having a brother like him; once you lose him it is really very painful. He died in front of me, our mother and all his children.
“The most painful thing is when you are told that your brother will be passing on in about an hour. And you stand by watching as the machine is going down until it stopped working. It was very tormenting,” he said.
Late Sani Dangote was laid to rest on Wednesday, November 17.
