“Brig. Gen Tuoyo will be remembered as the father of Mrs. Roli Uduaghan, and for his patriotism as well as immense contributions in the democratic process that led to the handing over of the reins of power to Pa Adekunle Ajasin (ascended), the first democratically elected Governor of Ondo State.”
Uduaghan, while commiserating with the Tuoyo’s family, prayed God to grant the children of the deceased military officer the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss, adding that “Our prayers are with both families as we ask God to grant them strength to go through this difficult period. May Papa’s soul find repose in the bosom of our Lord. Amen.”
Tuoyo is from the Itsekiri region of Delta State.
