The former presidential candidate for PDP, Atiku Abubakar, showed empathy in consoling Sadiq Daba’s chief mourners.
The news of the veteran filmmaker’s demise was first broken on Linda Ikeji’s Blog. The great thespian had previously suffered leukemia and prostate cancer, as he sought social assistance in 2019 to financially help him foot the bills for treatment.
In the tweet below, the PDP presidential candidate in the past election, Atiku Abubakar, had expressed heartfelt sympathy to the deceased and appreciated his efforts while alive.

Bitrus, as he’s popularly referred to by fans and fellow thespians, fought so hard and lost the battle yesterday evening to the cold hands of death. He was as well a fine journalist and a newscaster while alive.
We sympathize with his immediate family, Nollywood and his fans in this time of grief.
