The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote has revealed how he watched his brother, Sani Dangote, die after he was put off life support.

Dangote disclosed this when the former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, paid a condolence visit to the bereaved family in Kano.

He said it was tough for him to watch his brother die in his presence and his family after he was taken off life support.

He said, “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.”

Africa’s richest man, however, thanked Tinubu for taking the time to visit the family. He also thanked others present adding that their presence would help reduce the pain they suffer from the loss.

“Your excellency, you are our host because you are the governor of all of us and we really thank you for taking almost the whole week struggling with the crowds, it's not easy.

“I thank you all for all your prayers and your support. This will actually help us to reduce the pain that we are going through,” Dangote added.
