The grieving widow of the deceased, Bolatito, wept uncontrollably and refused to leave the graveside despite pleas that she should step aside.

She shouted the name of her late husband and reminded the dead of the sweet times they had together while she hurled curses on the killers of her husband.

She said the killers did not allow her husband to bury his parents and became inaudible at a time after she had screamed for long.

Service of tributes was first held at the Eruwa Town Hall where hundreds of youths, members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, and OAU students, among others had gathered.
