AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Hujjat al-Islam Sheikh Ibrahim Kikomo, one of the Shiite clerics active in Burundi, passed away.

The late Sheikh Ibrahim Kikomo was born in 1964 in the city of Rumge in Burundi in East Africa.

He completed his primary and secondary education in his hometown, and after receiving his diploma at the Islamic Cultural School, he began to study religious sciences. After completing this course, he emigrated to Sudan and studied at higher levels.

After returning from Sudan, he became interested to the religion of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) due to his studies and became a Shiite. This happened in 1990 and changed his destiny.

He was engaged in promoting the teachings of the Qur'an and Atrat in his country and established "Isna-Ashar Shiite Institute" with the help of his friends in 1999 and became the vice president of the institute.

Sheikh Ibrahim Kikomo was elected chairman of the Isna-Ashar Shiite Ulema Assembly and the AhluBayt (a.s.) Institute in 2004.

These activities continued for many years and unfortunately he infected with hepatitis C in 2019.

Sheikh Ibrahim Kikomo passed away on January 13, 2021 at the age of 57. -  AhlulBayt (a.s.) News Agency - ABNA
