After a funeral service at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Victoria Island, Lagos, the mother, Sylvia Ataga, remarked at the ceremony of singing that her beloved son, who was charitable to a fault, died an unfortunate death. She claimed that her son was denied the opportunity to witness a project on which he had spent more than seven years working. She said;
“God knows he did not deserve what those people did to him. My heart bleeds to him anytime I remember. He was generous to a fault.
It took death for me to know how loved he was. He has been robbed of the joy of seeing a project he spent seven years working on.
He has been denied the joy of seeing his children grow up, go to the university, get married and make him a grandfather.
These are wishes of every parent. His love for his children cannot be quantified. No way!”the distraught mum said
