    Why wishing him to rest in peace, did he give himself peace even at his old age.

    What a big shame that none was able to say anything good about this muderer to say the least. The other It was Adedibu,Lam Adesina, and no Saraki. More of this evil men will go this year so that ppl who still have their journeys ahead can breath fresh ait in Nigeria. Evil !

    Step into the shoe of perpetual slavery for kwara people, election rigging and imposition.
    May God forgive all his sins and give us the wisdom to learn that one day we will give account of our journey on earth.
    God is in his throne.
