“They are also known as destiny destroyers. May the Almighty God console, comfort and strengthen the family.
“My heart bleeds for the five-month-old charming and promising baby he left behind. May God step in and take absolute control of the destiny of this little child.
“He shall live to fulfil destiny and be greater than his parents,” she said.
Ekong applauded Nigerian youths for their quest for justice on the controversial death of the late singer.

“I encourage the youths who are passing through the same terrible experiences like what Mohbad experienced to speak out and take advantage of this saga.”
Appreciating the youths, Ekong said that Nigeria was blessed with talented, energetic, fearless, HiTech, brave and revolutionary youths.
