“I am pained right now : Mr Tony Otokhine just died .
He was a Senior Special Assistant to the Delta State Governor on Political Matters .
Just yesterday, we were together at President of Nigeria Bar Association NBA Olumide Akpata Traditional marriage ceremony in Benin City together with His Excellency Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and other dignitaries.
I remembered Tony telling me, Ossai look at RMD there , go and meet him and commend on the new comedy skit he just released with Mr Paul the comedian.
We laughed and immediately the governor stood up and that was how we came back to Asaba leaving him at the marriage.
I was shocked today to hear the sad news of his demise .
Heard he had an accident today on his way back to Asaba and that was it .
Just like that he is gone, this is so sad
This is painful .
Everyone who knows him can testify to the fact that he was so humble and so nice to people .

Nothing in this life that we are all killing ourselves for .”
