“It calls for sober reflection.”

“It is a clear indication that this world is like market and when you come you will go back home. Ben has come to the market he has behaved well and gone back to account for his good deeds on earth,” said Mr Abbo, a senator from Adamawa State.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family,” he added.
