Her death is very painful, coming at this time when we need her most. But we cannot question God why He called her now. I commiserate with His Lordship, the Chief Judge of Delta State, Justice Marshall Umukoro over the great loss of his lovely wife, Mrs Lizzy Umukoro”, the Speaker said.
He prayed Almighty God to give the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and to grant repose to her gentle soul.
