Nigeria’s minister of sports, Solomon Dalung is bereaved. Dalung has lost his first wife, Naomi, whome he fondly called ‘first lady’ in the wee hours on Sunday.
Dalung broke the news of her death, via his Facebook page saying:
May God grant her eternal rest. I AM BEREAVED: For it is appointed for man to live thereafter comes death and judgment says the Holy Bible. While in the Quran, it states that it is appointed that every soul shall test death. My heart is heavy, I cannot continue, I lost my first wife this morning. May her soul and the souls of faithful departed rest in the bosom of the Lord, amen. What a black Sunday.
Their marriage is blessed with six children: Changfa, Nalfa, Selbol, Malmicit, Manmak and Nanya.
