The Sardauna’s family said the death of Mr Suntai was a rude shock to them because “of the enormous respect he accorded the Sir Ahmadu Bello’s family.

The family expressed its heartfelt condolences to the family of the Mr Suntai, the good people of Taraba State and all lovers of peace and mutual coexistence in the country.
