However, he urged the family and the colleagues to be submissive to the will of God as God alone knows why it was allowed to happen.
Besides, he urged them to be consoled by the fact that Mrs. Akpomughe-Egberenede was diligent in her duties and a professional to the core.
“She contributed her quota to the development of the state and the journalism profession with the Epitome magazine … She was consistent and hardly was the magazine involved in controversies”, Dr Uduaghan stated.
He prayed God Almighty to give the family and NUJ the fortitude to bear the loss as well as grant her soul eternal rest.
