“The mother died a day after learning of her son’s death. Mother’s love: the greatest unconditional and infinite love we will ever experience. The son was shot and killed shortly after he resumed school in Jos, according to reports.
May your souls rest in peace with the Lord.
What a great tragedy for the family they left behind. “
