“The news of his unfortunate death in the hands of unknown gunmen is still a shock to me. It saddened my heart to receive such an unfortunate news about the murder of my good brother and a friend.
“The murder of Hon. ‘Sugar’ is primitive, wicked, inhumane, barbaric and highly condemnable.”
“I want to use this medium to pray to God to give the family he left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and for his reposed soul to rest in peace.
