    yakowa is gone, nsa azazi is also gone. Who wil be the next? Nigeria governor has to be very careful with the way they go about. Our country is bless with aboundant resources, instead of them to use this resources to construct a good road, a rilway for the masses to use and even them but desided to be westing the public fun flying on air while our road are spoiling. Now is time to constrate on our road. Nsa azazi and patrick yakowa, may your gentle souls rest in peace.

    What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget,may u all rest in peace amen.sir warrant officer mohammed kamel,we all the intire dodan barracks ikoyi family saying your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget” gud bye sir.

    Death they said is a necessary end which will come when it will come. The only thing we human gain in dis empty world is not to eat ,get fat and sleek as a Ram mark out for occassion, instead, to use d better part of our moment while living to Fear God and put smiles on d faces of d Needy. Period. We dat are still alive should be more careful, no one holds his life at hand. Money and power is not everytn.
