“I send you loads of gratitude from the bottom of my heart and that of my entire family.
“We should report to the public that despite the noise from Nigerian govt officials promising to ‘apprehend’ my brother’s killers, we are not aware any security agency/ies carrying out rescue operations to free those purportedly abducted or investigating the identity of Jide’s murderers.
“It is not as if we expect anything from the failed system that took our brother’s life, I feel that I owe you all an update on these matters.
“We will keep the public updated with progress regarding funeral arrangements.”
