Emir Sulu-Gambari, the council’s chairman described the late monarch as highly respected, adding that his demise was a colossal loss to humanity.
He said: “I received the news of his death with rude shock. Etsu Chatta Umar was a peace-loving monarch whose penchant for the growth and development of the emirate and state at large knows no bound. We will surely miss him.
“I pray that Almighty Allah will forgive his shortcomings, admit him into Al-Janatul Firdaos and give the family and the entire people of Patigi Emirate Council the fortitude to bear the great loss”.
