Awka, Dec. 18, 2018 (NNN) More Nigerians on Tuesday paid tributes to the memory of Mr Sunday Ajayi, the Federal Road Safety (FRSC) in Anambra, who died in a ghastly crash on Dec. 15.
Some of those who made their feelings known visited the FRSC Command Headquarters in Awka where they signed a condolence register opened for late Ajayi.
Mr Isyaku Yusuf, the State Director of Department of State Services (DSS) in his tribute, said he was yet to come to terms with the sudden death of Ajayi.
“God knows all, may your soul rest in the bossom of the Lord,” Yusuf stated.

“My Almighty Allah grant your soul eternal rest and give fortitude to your family to bear the loss.’’
Mr Kehinde Aremu, Director, NYSC in Anambra, noted that late Ajayi pursued road safety issues with uncommon vigour and regretted that he lost his life in a road crash.

“You were an amiable friend of NYSC, we love you but God loves you more, goodnight Sunday,” he noted.
