Alhaji Mansur Nuhu Bamalli, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Morocco and the younger brother of the Emir of Zazzau, has passed away at the age of 42. The unexpected demise was officially announced by the Media and Publicity officer of the Zazzau emirate council. According to the statement issued by the media officer, Mansur Nuhu Bamalli passed away at a private hospital in Lagos while he was in transit to Morocco. The statement also mentioned that details regarding his funeral prayers will be provided at a later time.
He is survived by his wife and two children. Former President Muhammadu Buhari appointed him to this role a year ago. In a letter dated October 7 and signed by the then Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, the appointment was made in recognition of his decades of meritorious service to Nigeria in the field of the Nigerian Foreign Service. The letter expressed the intention to invite him for an investiture ceremony.
Before his appointment as Ambassador, he held the position of a deputy director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It’s worth noting that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had issued a notice for the recall of Nigeria’s ambassadors, both career and non-career envoys, serving in 300 foreign missions worldwide. However, these diplomats have yet to return to the country due to logistical issues, including the need for Authority to Incur Expenditures (AIEs) to cover their passages and other travel arrangements for their return to Nigeria.
