Amadu Chanchangi, Kaduna-based billionaire and Chairman of Chanchangi Airlines, is dead.

He died along Kaduna-Abuja road while being transported to a hospital in Abuja in the early hours of Wednesday, a family source said. The source disclosed that the business mogul had been sick for quite some time.

"He will be buried by 2pm today (Wednesday) according to Islamic rites at the Bashama road cemetery," family sources added.

Among early sympathisers were Bala Ibn Na'Allah, Deputy Senate Leader, Mohammed Ali, former member of Kaduna State House of Assembly, among others.

Mr. Na'Allah, who is also the Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Aviation, described the late Chanchangi as a man of peace and a shining example of a devout Muslim.  

"His contribution to the development of the aviation sector, more especially in the North, will remain indelible," he said.

He prayed to Allah to grant him eternal rest and the family, people of Taraba and Kaduna states, the fortitude to bear the loss.

Chanchangi is survived by three wives, 33 children, among them Rufai Chanchangi, a member of the House of Representatives.
