” We all came to Taraba state together with the intentions of going back along, but death snatched nine of you away from us. They, however, obeyed the call to serve their fathers land not knowing that death was also calling. Your drowning brought great shocking news to us, Death you have done your worst to us.
Their families bid them farewell to serve their fathers land. Now they are being brought home in the lifeless state. To their families, may God grant you the grace to bear the loss and to our falling hero’s, may your souls find peace with God.”
