Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat: passed away at 84

KOTA BARU: Pas spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat passed away at his residence here at 9.40 tonight.

He was 84.

The former Kelantan Menteri Besar had been battling prostate cancer over the last few years, and on Jan 19 was admitted to the Universiti Sains Malaysia hospital.

His family had said that he did not want to undergo chemotherapy to treat his stage-four prostate cancer, and was instead taking medicines as prescribed by the doctor.

However, it is understood that his condition took a turn for the worse on Wednesday.

At 8.40pm tonight, he was taken via ambulance to his family home in Kampung Pulau Melaka.

He passed away about an hour later, with his family members present at his side.

His death was confirmed by his son, Pasir Mas Member of Parliament Nik Mohammad Abduh at about 10.15 pm.

Nik Abduh said the Solat Jenazah will be held at Masjid Tok Guru, Pulau Melaka tomorrow (Friday) at 10am.
