The governor, who assured the family that the state government will ensure that the late Ediba is given a befitting burial, offered employment to the first son of the deceased, Samuel Ediba with the state Ministry of Youths and Sports.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Samuel Ediba expressed appreciation to Governor Ortom for visiting the family to commiserate with them.

Late Ediba hails from Akpa District of Otukpo Local Government. He died October 25 at the age of 80.
