“God, please render the devil and his agents helpless and useless,” the source, who had been devastated by the murder, said.
“I was with this man at Sharon Hall, All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha, the same day. It was an event hosted by the University of Nigeria Nsukka Alumni Association (UNAA), Onitsha branch, when the late Dora Akunyili was honored.

He was there with his son, Obum, who now works for the state government of Anambra.
“We watched them walk away to their cars, and it was touching to see Obum hugging him tightly as they parted ways to board their respective automobiles.
“Obum was in a white Hilux, and the dude was in a huge Jeep,” says the narrator (i think Prado). Please, God, have mercy!”
