He spent the last years of his life pushing for an end to the long-running killings in Southern Kaduna, which were blamed on armed Fulani herders.

As part of his campaign, he became a vocal opponent of President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies, and the State Security Service recently asked him to explain some of his on-air comments concerning premeditated bloodshed around the country.

The Department of State Services invited the former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) for his claim that a serving Northern governor was the commander of the dangerous Boko Haram insurgents.
