Mailafia And Suspicious Angel Of Death

As I made it to the Church for worship at 9:50 am last Sunday, an unlikely caller never gave me a hunch of what to expect. As the Christian I have known for several decades, Mr. Nathaniel Ikyur, SA (Media) to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, should be attending the usual Sunday service, instead of calling me. So I thought.

After absorbing the shock of such devastating news, I reached out for confirmation from some of the people I thought should know. None of them confirmed the story.

I heaved a sigh of relief as I fervently hoped that the news may, after all, be fake. I felt a momentary consolation.

“We just lost Barr Hauwa Shekarau. We are yet to bury her and this news, may it be fake,” I prayed and wished.
