This is an open post to everyone just to respond to all who have tried to reach me that I’m unable to respond to because of the volumes of calls coming in.
I will be unavailable for a while after this post so my children and I can process in private.
All I want to say right now is that my everlasting date Ubong King has completed the short 48 years assignment that our Lord asked him to do and he’s at peace now.
This is in response to all the calls I can’t pick just now- please bear with me. I need to keep my mind strong so love me from a distance and pray for us all.
I can’t do RIP yet – maybe later. But the family and I are stable and God is in our corner.
The security expert and founder of Protection Plus Security Limited who was also known as the ‘Troublemaker’ was said to have tested positive for COVID-19.
