“His birthday and that of his twins was on 23 of this month. An arrangement for the burial anniversary of our late father was also slated for the same day. But this has been cancelled because of his death. He left behind a mother aged 76 years old.” – said the late Policeman’s brother
He used to work at Zenith Bank before joining the Nigerian Police Force.
