“”We all know the pains that such a tragic loss inflict on every family, especially in this unfortunate circumstance.
“I pray that God Almighty grants our dear Senator Balla Na’Allah and all members of his family, the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss”, he said.
Omo – Agege also decried the spate of killings in some parts of the country, even as he charged security agencies to halt the ugly trend.
