“They snuffed out the life of yet another real human being! Rest In Power, “Dr. Mamiye!”
“This act in itself will not delay their day of justice. “I traveled widely with you and our father as a little kid. You were the most loved robust kid I ever first knew. You, Mr. Magnet had no enemy!
“You, Mr. Sunshine Foundation who made everyone happy. “You, the boy who snuck out his older ones to parties, taking all the blames when our disciplinarian father found out. “You, the guy who was an out-of-the-box thinker who decided school wasn’t for you and created your own genre of music and then turned around to go to school after you almost turned 50!
“You lived your life so that everyone could be alright but now assassinated by everything that’s not alright! “Saddest day yet!” Confirming the report, the PPRO of Edo State Police Command, SP Bello Katongos said, he was killed by suspected kidnappers at about 06.45am at the Lagos- Benin Expressway.
