By Sadiq Abubakar, Abuja.
The management team of the Abuja Original Inhabitants Youths Empowerment Organization (AOIYEO) led by its executive director, Commandant Isaac David, has condoled the people of Tukpechi chiefdom in Kuje area council of Abuja, over the demised of the chief of the community, Chief Yunana Osu Zhingbanyi.
Commandant Isaac also shared his grief with the former chairman of the council, Hon Danladi Etsu Zhen, who is the younger brother of the late monarch, he said the entire management and staff of AOIYEO received shock and sadness over the death of the chief.
He described the late traditional ruler as a father and guardian, whom he said had contributed immensely towards sustaining peace and unity among all tribes across the FCT, adding that the late monarch had also promoted the cultures of the FCT natives.
David, however, noted that the death of the late Tukpechi chief had no doubt created a big vacuum which he said will be difficult to fill while urging the family of the late chief and the entire people of Tukpechi chiefdom to continue to pray for the reposed soul of the monarch.
He also prayed for the soul of the deceased to continue to rest in peace, adding that may God grant the family of the deceased the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“The death of our father, Chief of Tukpechi, Chief Yunana Osu Zhingbanyi, is a great loss to not only the people of Tukpechi chiefdom or Kuje alone but the entire FCT because the late chief had contributed immensely to the peace and unity of his people. And it is this premise that, on behalf of the AOIYEO, we pray for God to comfort the family and give them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss,” he said.
The late chief of Tukpechi fell ill shortly after he was released by his abductors. Remove the last paragraph and put this. Thanks
