As much as I hate the RIP caption, I must say is another sad news that pinches my heart; we were together at a party in December. “We gisted about all that we have missed considering that we were trained together at Odunfa Caaucus, it was so nice to see each other again. “Only for me to hear that Abu is gone, such a young chap. May your soul rest in peace Abu. So sad,”

Actor Bigval Jokotoye said ”This is vanity. Rest in peace Abu.
Another actor, Ibrahim Chatta narrated his last experience with the late actor, saying:

Ah! Is it all over now? I pray Allah forgives your sins,” he said.
