In a message delivered on his behalf, the Minister described the death of Mr. Nwoga and his two children as heart rendering, adding that he was deeply touched when he received the news of the death of three members of the same family in the unfortunate flood incident.
The Minister who urged the family to remain strong in the face of the tragedy, prayed Almighty God to grant eternal rest to the victims and also give the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
Wife of the late Mr. Nwoga who received the delegation, Mrs. Ijeoma Kenneth Nwoga thanked the FCT Minister for sending a delegation to visit and commiserate with the family, adding that the visit was very soothing and has boosted their spirits.
Mrs. Nwoga said the family had six children including the two, Master Prestige (9) and Miss Winner (13) who died along with their father.
