Funtua, has died at the age of 77.

Prominent Industrialist and Chairman, Bulet International Construction Company, Ismaila Isa Funtua, has died at the age of 77.

Funtua, who is also a life patron of the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria, died on Monday.

The business tycoon, who hails from Katsina State like the President, is among those whom critics of the Buhari regime refer to as the cabal.

Funtua, along with the late former Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; and the President’s nephew, Mamman Daura; were described as powerful members in the ‘kitchen cabinet’ of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
