He said that the skitmaker was murdered in a terrible vehicle accident on the way back to Kano.
Usman said that since Kamal was one of the kindest persons in the world, his passing has devastated his family and that he would be sorely missed.
On Monday, my mother asked me to call Kamal around 5 pm, and he said he was already inside a vehicle to Kano. Then, my mother started feeling somehow.
Later, someone called me to ask if I had someone travelling from Maiduguri to Kano, and I told the person yes. It was at that point the caller broke the news of what happened to me.
