#BringBackOurGirls family mourns passage of advocate Mubaraka Sani
7 March 2016
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our movement’s family member Mubaraka Sani, yesterday 6 March 2016, in a road accident on Kaduna-Abuja road. She was buried yesterday according to Islamic rites.
Muba (as we call her) was one our movement’s most passionate advocates. Her gentle and calm spirit belied her relentless fighting spirit and passion for justice. Among other things, she longed to see our Chibok girls reunited with their families. She yearned for a just and equitable Nigeria with equal opportunities for all. She fought hard for a better Nigeria.
Indeed, yet another soldier fighting for the soul of Nigeria has gone home.
Today Muba may be no more alive, but she will forever be remembered for all she did for humanity. She quietly but surely made a difference in those she encountered. Her contributions will never be erased or forgotten.
Again, the worth of life is not necessarily in its longevity but in impact, and value added. We are inspired by her life example. She was calm, kind, and caring. Her warm presence and consistency will be sorely missed, but surely never forgotten.
She is survived by both parents, siblings and other relations. May Almighty God give her family and the #BringBackOurGirls family worldwide the enablement to bear this loss.
Our movement therefore holds a 3-day mourning as part of activities to honour her memory at our usual meeting grounds, Unity Fountain Abuja, as from 4pm beginning this Monday 7 to Wednesday 9 March. There we shall also sign the condolence register.
