President of the Senate Senator David Mark literarily broke down and struggled to fight back tears as the news of the death of The Guardian Assistant Political Editor John Abba -Ogbodo filtered into town.
The President of the Senate noted that late Ogbodo was a vibrant, versatile and resourceful Journalist who was professionally minded at all times.
He said ” I feel so devastated. Ogbodo was like my son. Our relationship became stronger and cemented when I met him in the National Assembly as a Journalist, of course, being my relation and a member of my constituents, it was like home away from home for both of us.
“Death is an inevitable end. We don’t plan for it . It must come when it shall.But frankly speaking, this is one death so cruel.
” I sincerely sympathized with the immediate family, the Guardian house and the entire Nigerian media for this painful loss.
