“The senseless killings in the east must stop.
“The unfortunate incident that happened today in Anambra State that led to the death of my colleague, Marvelous Sule Bambur, has left all of us (the friends and colleagues he left behind) not just in deep shock, but in tears
“MB (as we fondly called him) was such an amazing personality; one that checks up on his colleagues every now and then.
“See ehhnn, your killers will know no rest and they’ll die a very slow and painful death. They can’t cause us so much pains and go scot-free, no! ‘Unknown gun men’ ending a life they didn’t create is the greatest sin against humanity.
“Again! The very country you called your own failed in her duty to protect a great citizen like you, and we will never forget
“May God rest your gentle soul .” He wrote.
