Amb. John who spoke at the funeral service of his late elder brother said if the death of the late DIG was “the sacrifice that Taraba can make for peace in Nigeria, the family accepts it.”
“We are not asking for any investigation,” he added. He thanked God for the life of the late DIG, saying his brother had touched so many lives positively and there was every reason to thank God for the years he spent on earth.
“It is not how long you live that matters but how well you touch lives,” he said.
He said they were mourning the brother because he was just in his fifties and had not crossed the covenant age of 70 years, but for the mother who had died 10 days after the DIG’s tragedy, it was celebration as she died peacefully at the age of 83.
Earlier, in the funeral sermon, the Taraba State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishop Timothy Yahaya said death was an appointment with God and it was inevitable.
