On behalf of my family, the people of Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District and the Nigerian Senate, I commiserate with the family of the deceased former police officer and pray to Allah to give the family members, friends and associates he left behind the fortitude to bear the great loss.

“May Almighty Allah, in His infinite mercy, grant the departed soul, aljannah- Firdaus,” he said.
