The Kogi State Government has described the death of a young DSS Operative, Mr Ade Bamidele Daniel who hailed from Mopamuro LGA of the state as a “supreme price to keep Nigeria together”.
The late Mr Daniel who was laid to rest at his native Orokere Amuro in Mopamuro LGA of Kogi State amidst wailing by the people, was allegedly killed by yet to be identified gunmen in Imo State last week.
Speaking to newsmen after the burial at Orokere Amuro, the State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Hon. Kingsley Fanwo who stood in for the Governor said the young Mr Daniel’s death is a “stab in the heart of the state”.
His words: “This is one death too many and his death is a price for the unity of our nation. Our nation cannot afford to continue to bury young people who should be at the heart of our drive for nation building.
“Mr Daniel was a committed and dedicated operative in the DSS who has contributed immensity to the security of the nation despite his young age and short stint in the service. We mourn a gallant who was killed by cowards threatening the peace of our nation.
“Our thoughts are with his wife, son, father, siblings, the people of Orokere Amuro and Mopamuro as a whole. May his soul rest in perfect peace”.
Also speaking after the ceremonies, the Executive Chairman of Mopamuro LGA called on security agencies to ensure those who killed Ade Daniel do not go unpunished, saying the death of the young man is a great loss to Mopamuro Local Government Area.
The entourage from the Governor later paid a condolence visit to the father of the deceased, Commodore Michael Folusho Daniel (rtd).
Commodore Daniel (rtd) thanked the Governor for identifying with the family at its “darkest hour”.
