Sani, the Group Vice President of the Dangote Group, died on Sunday after a brief illness in the US.

A source close to the family and quoted by Daily Trust said, “Sani Dangote had been battling colon cancer and he travelled to the US in search of a cure, but as God willed, he died at the age of 61.

“Indeed, the Dangote family really feel the death, but we have accepted it with total submission to the will of Almighty Allah.”

Sani is survived by his aged mother, wife, eight children and brothers and sisters.
