Prof. Balarabe Maikaba, a prominent scholar and former Head of the Department of Mass Communication, Bayero University, Kano (BUK), is dead.
Maikaba died on Sunday at a private clinic in Kano metropolis, after a brief illness.
A relative of the deceased, who pleaded anonymity, said that the deceased, who was diabetic, complained of fever on Saturday.
“When he complained of fever, we rushed him to the hospital where he died not long ago. We are already moving to the Abattoir cemetery where he will be buried,” he said.
Maikaba played a prominent role in the unbundling of the Department of Mass Communication of BUK into various departments and its subsequent upgrade to the status of a Faculty.
He served in various capacities including Head of Department, Dean of the Faculty and other key academic positions in the university.
Maikaba also played a prominent role in the development of commercial digital television and Radio FM stations in Kano and Jigawa States, and also contributed to the growth of the Hausa Film Industry (Kannywood).
