Imam, Tambuwal described Shinkafi as a distinguished legal luminary,

security expert, politician with conscience and great community leader and

“Marafa’s death has closed a chapter in the life of one Nigeria’s most

valuable public officers who made his mark in both public and private

sectors. He was a
truly passionate Nigerian whose invaluable contributions to issues of

national interest will be greatly missed.
