Stephens, who was 66 years old, ascended the stool of the Hama Bachama on December 15, 2013 as the 28th occupant.
Buhari recalled that the retired military officer “distinguished himself in the Nigerian Army and devoted his post-service years to promoting the development of his people and fostering unity of his fatherland.”
Presidential spokesman, Mr Garba Shehu, said Buhari urged the Bachama Kingdom to “elect a worthy successor”, as he prayed God to console all those mourning Stephens’ passing.
