It was a day of solidarity and deep expression of love as Chief Barr. Dumo Lulu-Briggs travelled all the way to the peace loving and agrarian town of Okwale in Khana LGA of Rivers State in the company of his associates to fraternize with the bereaved Nke-ee family.
Speaking with pressmen at the occasion, Chief Lulu-Briggs described the funeral event as one that arouses mixed feelings of sadness and joy.
He said: “As a man who clocked 96 years of age in a world of so much uncertainty, I have no doubt in me that Chief Anson Nke-ee lived a good life. However, his departure to eternity has created a vacuum that will always be felt by his entire family; so, he will always be missed, and it is on this note that we decided to come and comfort our brother, Hon. Friday Nubari Nke-ee and his family.”
He thanked the people of Okwale for the wonderful reception accorded him and his entourage to the event, and prayed for God to turn the family’s grief to joy, and bless them abundantly.
On arriving Port Harcourt from Ogoni, Chief Lulu-Briggs also took time to celebrate with the family of Sokonte Davies on the occasion of their daughter’s marital journey. At the wedding reception of Mr Obinna Kanu and Lady Odima-a Winston Dagogo, Chief Lulu Briggs expressed his delight over the successful nuptial ceremony and shared in the joy of the family. Once more, he wished the newly wedded a marital union full of God’s blessings.
