She also mentioned how efforts to get support from influential figures like the late Maitama Sule, Shehu Idris, and Tony Momoh were unsuccessful.

Zainab decried how her family's attempt (mother and brother) to secure a good apartment and business from notable men linked to her late father had been thwarted, leading to their current predicament.

"We tried to plead with notable men whom our father would have wanted to be our father figures, to get us a home and a business, but nothing has happened. They are men like the late Maitama Sule, the late Shehu Idris, Emir of Zaria and the late Tony Momoh, who was my mum's uncle but no respite yet."

Speaking further, Zainab explained that her mum and her brother have been in Morning Side Suites for two months. She said they have tried hard to settle the bills, but it is a tough situation.

"The general manager of the hotel asked us to vacate yesterday, June 24, 2024, they came with police to evict us but we are still begging them.
"I need Alex Otti to intervene in this situation. I know as a father he wouldn't bear our eviction. I have tried to get to him by sending some of his staff members like J. Martins but I got no response.
"The death of my father put us in danger. I hope I get a positive response from Otti. The current emir of Kano is also aware of our predicament. I pray for peace in Kano state and hope that the governor of Kano, Abba Yusuf also intervenes in this matter because we need help."
