I am still in awe of how the soul of such a young, proactive, kind and intelligent individual would be taken away. This is indeed a sad news for myself, his family, political associates, the good people of Sagamu whom he diligently served during his stint at the State Assembly. We have lost a brave captain who has now passed to the status of a legend. His death in many ways can be said to be truly irreparable”.
