The popularly known cleric Alfa Gani Aboto was traveling from a da’awah event in Minna, Niger State, with his assistants Alfa Azeez Omoekun and Alfa Nurudeen when the flood swept away his Toyota Yaris car as he attempted to cross a bridge near Harmony Estate/Kukende in the Akerebiata neighborhood of Ilorin.

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the state fire service pulled the victims’ bodies from a river next to Olusola Saraki Abattoir on Sobi Army Barracks Road in Ilorin.

Sheikh Kamaldeen Al-Adabiy, the first Mufti of Ilorin and founder of the Ansarul Islam Society of Nigeria, was a student of the late sheik. He was also a hafeedh and the state’s leading trainer of Quran memorizers.

After a janazah in Ilorin, his corpse was transferred to his village of Aboto, Asa LGA of the state, on Sunday.

The death of the popular Muslim preacher and his assistants was termed as startling and sad by the state governor in a statement issued by Rafiu Ajakaye, his Chief Press Secretary.

“We received with shock and sadness the deaths of the popular Islamic cleric Sheikh Aboto and a few others whose identities are not yet known. As faithful, we accept the judgment of our creator. We beseech Him to grant the scholar and others involved al-Jannah Firdaus,” the Governor said in a statement. 


“This, indeed, is one sad news too many. The death of Sheikh Abdulganiy Aboto is a huge loss for the Muslim community and to Ilorin as a whole. He was known for his vast knowledge and great efforts in the propagation of Islamic messages in the simplest form possible for his audience.”
